Name of the Patient : Abc Xyza Almn / F / 18 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzah.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O seizures since 4 years.
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.
There are fairly well-defined areas which are near isointense to CSF on all the pulse sequences within the left temporal and left parietal lobes. Adjacent to these are areas which are hypointense on the T1 Weighted images and which turn hyperintense on the Proton, T2 Weighted and FLAIR images and would represent gliotic changes. These lesions in toto would represent areas of cystic encephalomalacia.
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.
Areas of cystic encephalomalacia within the left temporal and left parietal lobes.
