Name of the Patient : Abc Xyzp Lolmn / M / 21 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzyakar.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Brain.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O seizures since 00.00.00.
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.
3 mm thick T2 Weighted coronal images.
There are small (atleast two) subcentimeter lesions in the right parietal lobe which are hypointense to the white matter on the T1 Weighted images and turns hyperintense on the proton and T2 Weighted images. There is surrounding edema with 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 granulomatous infective lesions in the right parietal lobe following the signal characteristics of cysticercii in the vesicular stage.
A follow up scan would be useful.
