Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzv Chlmn / M / 2 1/2 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzah.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O sudden onset of loss of vision (left more than right) since 4-5 days (partial amblyopia).
H/O fever since 1 month.
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.
3 mm thick T1 Weighted and STIR coronal images.
There is no focal area of altered signal intensity in the brain parenchyma.
The optic nerves on either side show a hyperintense signal on the STIR images (scans 106.7 - 106.10).
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.
Note is made of enlarged adenoids.
The MRI features are suggestive of altered signal of the optic nerves bilaterally and this may represent optic neuritis/ischemia/demyelination.
