Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzchal Palmn / M / 6 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzah.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O GTC seizures since the age of 1 year.
Known C/O neurocysticercosis.
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.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images.
There is seen an approximately 2.0 x 10.0 x 7.0 mms diameter sized well marginated, hyperintense lesion with a hypointense rim on the proton and T2 Weighted images in the right fronto-parietal, parafalcine region. This lesion is hypointense centrally, with a rim which is isointense to white matter on the T1 Weighted images. The margin is crenated. There is perilesional edema with effacement of the adjacent cortical sulcal spaces.
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.
An approximately 2.0 x 10.0 x 7.0 mms diameter sized lesion in the right fronto-parietal, parafalcine region as described, follows the signal characteristics of a neurocysticercus in the colloid-vesicular stage.
As compared to the previous MRI (study no:00007) dated 00.00.00, there is a slight decrease in the size of the lesion.
