Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzr Slmn / M / 45 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzgaonkar.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O headaches with fever since 2 months.
C/O seizures and weakness of the LUE since 10 days.
M.R.I of the brain was performed using the following parameters :
5 mm thick T1 Weighted, proton and T2 Weighted axial images.
5 mm thick FLAIR coronal images.
After administration of contrast the following parameters were used :
5 mm thick T1 Weighted axial and coronal images with magnetization transfer.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images.
There is evidence of a serpingenous/curvilinear hypointensity on the T1 Weighted images which turns hyperintense on the proton and T2 Weighted images within the head of the left caudate nucleus and most likely represents a blood vessel.
There is no focal area of abnormal enhancement within the brain parenchyma or the meninges.
Both the lateral, third and the fourth ventricles are normal. The basal cisternal spaces are unremarkable. There is no shift of the midline structures.
Inflammatory changes are noted within the left maxillary sinus, ethmoidal air cells and frontal sinus.
The MRI features are suggestive of serpingenous/curvilinear area of altered signal within the head of the left caudate nucleus and most likely represents a blood vessel, like a venous angioma.
