Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzn Almn / M / 3 mnths.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzshi.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O cough/cold/breathlessness with bronchopneumonia. Patient on
ventilator. Weaned off.
Now C.T. Scan s/o porencephalic cyst.
M.R.I of the brain was performed using the following parameters :
4 mm thick T1 Weighted, proton and T2 Weighted axial images.
4 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted coronal images.
MR cisternogram was obtained in the coronal plane.
There is a large, well-marginated lesion with smooth walls
in the left fronto-parietal region. This lesion is seen to communicate with the body of the left lateral ventricle and follows CSF signal intensity characteristics on all the pulse sequences. There are no internal structure within this lesion. This lesion is lined with white matter. There is mild dilatation of the body of the left lateral ventricle. This lesion would represent a porencephalic csyt. There is slight mass effect with mild shift of the midline structures to the right.
The myelination pattern is normal for the patients age.
The right lateral, third and the fourth ventricles are normal. The basal cisternal spaces are unremarkable. No obvious vascular anomaly is identified on this study.
The MRI features of a large porencephalic cyst in the left fronto-parietal region.
