Name of the Patient : Abc Xyza Huslmn / F / 22 yrs.
Referred by : Dr. Abc Xyzhalani.
Examination : M.R.I. of the Sella & Perisellar Region.
CLINICAL PROFILE :
C/O amenorrhea since 5 years.
M.R.I of the sella and perisellar region was performed using the following parameters :
3 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted coronal images.
3 mm thick T1 Weighted and T2 Weighted sagittal images.
The brain was screened with 5 mm thick T2 Weighted axial images.
The height of the pituitary gland is 2.00 mms and is slightly decreased.
The pituitary gland is in its normal location and reveals normal signal intensity. The posterior pituitary gland reveals normal hyperintense signal on the T1 Weighted images. The pituitary stalk is in the midline. The hypothalamus is unremarkable.
Hyperintense signal on the T1 Weighted images is seen within the lentiform nuclei, thalamus/subthalamus and cerebral peduncles bilaterally. This may represent deposition of paramagnetic substances.
The ventricular system is unremarkable.
Incidental note is made of mild inflammatory changes in the left mastoid air cells and sphenoid sinus.
The MRI features are suggestive of :
1. Slight decreased height of the pituitary gland.
2. Hyperintense signal within the lentiform nuclei, thalamus/subthalamus and cerebral peduncles bilaterally may represent deposition of paramagnetic substances (? etiology).
