Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzlesh Shetlmn / M / 2 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzwant.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
Alleged H/O fall from a height with loss of consciousness for an hour 17 days back.
M.R.I of the brain was performed using the following parameters :
5 mm thick T1 Weighted, proton and T2 Weighted axial images.
4 mm thick FLAIR coronal images.
There is seen a small, extra-axial, CSF signal intensity lesion on all the pulse sequences in the right temporal lobe, which most likely represents an arachnoid cyst. Resultant mild indentation on the right temporal lobe is noted. This lesion measures approximately 1.8 x 2.8 x 2.2 cms.
There is no focal area of abnormal altered signal intensity in the brain parenchyma per se. Hyperintense areas seen in both posterior parietal regions represent terminal areas of myelination (scan 103.12-13).
There is mild dilatation of the right temporal horn as compared to the left. Both the lateral, third and the fourth ventricles are otherwise unremarkable. The basal cisternal spaces are unremarkable. There is no shift of the midline structures. No obvious vascular anomaly is identified on this study.
Note is made of enlarged adenoids.
