Name of the Patient : Abc XyzJalmn / F / 21 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzah.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
Known C/O pontine tuberculoma. On AKT.
M.R.I of the brain was performed using the following parameters :
5 mm thick T1 Weighted, proton and T2 Weighted axial images.
3 mm thick T2 Weighted coronal images.
There is evidence of a small, approximately 6.0 mms diameter sized hyperintense area on the proton and T2 Weighted images in the upper aspect of the pons, posteriorly and to the right. This is mildly hypointense on the T1 Weighted images.
There is mild prominence of the cerebellar folia bilaterally.
Both the lateral, third and the fourth ventricles are normal. The basal cisternal spaces are unremarkable. There is no shift of the midline structures. No obvious vascular anomaly is identified on this study.
Altered signal in the upper pons, posteriorly and to the right as described most likely represents a resolving granuloma/gliotic changes.
As compared to the previous MRI (study no:0000) dated 00.00.00, there is no significant change in the size of the lesion.
