Name of the Patient : Abc XyzSlmn / F / 12 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzah.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O delayed milestones with speech impairment.
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 T2 Weighted coronal images.
5 mm thick FLAIR coronal images.
There are ill-defined, hyperintense areas on the proton, T2 Weighted and FLAIR images in the periventricular white matter bilaterally. These lesions appear hypointense on the T1 Weighted images.
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.
Altered signal in the periventricular white matter bilaterally is not specific for a single etiology. A metabolic disorder or a dysmyelinating etiology should be ruled out.
