Name of the Patient : Abc Xyz Mlmn / M / 23 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzrges.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O seizures on 00.00.0000.
M.R.I of the brain was performed using the following parameters :
5 mm thick T1 Weighted, proton and T2 Weighted axial images.
3 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted coronal images.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images.
There is a small, subcentimeter lesion in the left occipital lobe (se/im 102/8). This lesion is hypointense to the grey matter on the T1 Weighted images and remains hypointense on the T2 Weighted images. There is surrounding white matter edema with mass effect and effacement of the adjacent sulci.
The hippocampal complex on either side is unremarkable.
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.
The MRI features are suggestive of a subcentimeter, calcified, granuloma in the left occipital lobe with mass effect as described. It is difficult to characterize the etiology of the lesion.
A follow-up scan would be worthwhile.
