Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzn Bilklmn / M / 5 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzngsarkar.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Cervical Spine.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
Known C/O right anterior nasal encephalocele for which right frontal craniotomy was done on 00.00.00.
Now C/O weakness of all four extremities since 3-4 days.
M.R.I of the cervical spine was performed using the following parameters :
3 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted sagittal images.
5 mm thick T1 Weighted and Fast Scan (T2 *) axial images.
The cervical vertebral bodies and the intervertebral discs show normal signal intensity. The joints of Luschka and the visualized pre and paravertebral soft tissues are unremarkable.
The cervical spinal cord reveals normal signal intensity.
The atlanto-axial region and the cervico-medullary junction are unremarkable.
Incidental note is made of enlarged lymphnodes in the deep cervical chain bilaterally.
The brain was screened with 5 mm thick T1 Weighted sagittal images which shows hypointense area in the right inferior frontal lobe with few hyperintense areas which may represent areas of gliosis with probable fat/gel foam deposit or extracellular methemoglobin.
No significant abnormality is detected within the cervical spine on this study.
