Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzak Berlmn / M / 16 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzagwati.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O seizures on 00.00.00.
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 T1 Weighted and FLAIR coronal images.
There are small, subcentimeter, hypointense areas (atleast 2) in the left frontal region on the T1 Weighted images which are seen to remain hypointense on the proton, T2 Weighted and FLAIR images. There is surrounding perilesional edema with mass effect and effacement of the adjacent sulci.
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.
The MRI features are suggestive of areas of altered signal (atleast two) in the left frontal region which most likely represent granulomas, probably cysticercii.
A contrast enhanced scan is mandatory.
Patient refused contrast administration.
