Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzumar Jlmn / M / 20 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzidhungat.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O seizures 1 month back.
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 T2 Weighted coronal images.
3 mm thick FLAIR coronal images.
There is seen an approximately 7.0 mms diameter sized well marginated hyperintense lesion with a hypointense rim on the proton, T2 Weighted and FLAIR images in the left posterior parietal, parafalcine region. This lesion appears relatively hypointense to normal white matter on the T1 Weighted images (the lesion is probably a conglomeration of multiple lesions). There is perilesional edema with effacement of the sulcal spaces and mild indentation on the splenium of the corpus callosum and the body of the left lateral ventricle, posteriorly.
The right 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.
Inflammatory changes are noted in the left maxillary antrum, left anterior ethmoidal air cells and left frontal sinus.
An approximately 7.0 mms diameter sized lesion (? conglomerate of multiple lesions) in the left posterior parietal, parafalcine region follows the signal characteristics of a neurocysticercus in the colloid-vesicular stage.
