Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzn Khlmn / M / 6 1/4 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzhalani.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Sella & Perisellar Region.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
Known C/O precocious puberty.
M.R.I of the sella and perisellar region was performed using the following parameters :
3 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted (with fat saturation) coronal images.
3 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images.
5 mm thick T2 Weighted axial images.
MR cisternogram was obtained in the coronal plane.
There is a fairly well circumscribed mass lesion in the suprasellar cistern. This lesion is located between the pituitary stalk and the mamillary bodies. This lesion appears to be sessile and appears to be arising from the tuber cinereum. This lesion is isointense to grey matter on the T1 Weighted images and turns heterogeneously hyperintense on the T2 Weighted images.
The pituitary gland is normal.
There is no focal area of abnormal signal alteration within the brain on the T2 Weighted axial images.
The MRI features are suggestive of a mass lesion in the suprasellar cistern. In the given clinical setting, signal characteristics, age and sex of the patient and location of the lesion, it most probably represents a tuber cinereum hamartoma.
As compared to the previous MRI (study no:0000) dated 00.00.00, there is no significant change noted.
