916 Possible Causes for Agenesis of the Occipital Lobes, MRI Scan of the Brain Abnormal

  • Congenital Muscular Dystrophy

    Uncommonly, agenesis of septum pellucidum can be seen. Polymicrogyria typically seen in the frontal and parietal lobes.[neuroradiologycases.com] MRI scans show white matter changes; the children affected have normal intelligence unless there is there is a structural brain abnormality - this can happen in a small percentage[disabled-world.com] Pachygyria in approximately half of patients, typically involving the temporal and occipital lobes. Cerebellar polymicrogyria is seen in approximately 90% of patients.[neuroradiologycases.com]

  • Stroke

    […] to identify abnormalities in the brain arteries (such as aneurysms) or other sources of bleeding, and structural MRI if this shows no cause.[en.wikipedia.org] […] tendency to bleed, and if some rarer processes such as homocystinuria might be involved.For hemorrhagic strokes, a CT or MRI scan with intravascular contrast may be able[en.wikipedia.org] […] vasculature (if a bleed is thought to have originated from an aneurysm or arteriovenous malformation); blood tests to determine if blood cholesterol is high, if there is an abnormal[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Alzheimer Disease

    Although the neuropathologic changes and diagnostic criteria for the neurodegenerative disorder Alzheimer's disease (AD) are well-established, the clinical symptoms vary largely. Symptomatically, frontal variant of AD (fv-AD) presents very similarly to behavioral variant frontotemporal dementia (bvFTD), which creates[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Temporal Lobe Epilepsy

    CT and MRI scans reveal structural abnormalities of the brain such as tumors and cysts, which may cause seizures.[web.archive.org] A magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan of her brain at that time revealed minimal small vessel ischemic disease.[consultant360.com] The most commonly used brain scans include CT (computed tomography), PET (positron emission tomography) and MRI (magnetic resonance imaging).[web.archive.org]

  • Alcohol Dementia

    Intellectual deterioration, changing in behavior and affect are often seen in association with long continued and heavy alcohol ingestion and such deteriorated states of patients are called alcoholic dementia. A large number of investigators have attempted to designate clinical concept of alcoholic dementia[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cerebral Hemorrhage

    MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) can detect abnormal blood vessels, underlying tumors, and some aneurysms.[healthcommunities.com] CT (computed tomography) scans of the head may be taken to identify and assess the amount of blood spillage in the brain.[healthcommunities.com]

  • Leptomeningeal Metastasis

    A contrast-enhanced Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan of the brain was obtained and revealed abnormal enhancement between the cerebellar folia, consistent with meningeal[pancreas.imedpub.com]

  • Demyelinating Disease

    Tumefactive demyelinating disease (TDD) is a rare primary demyelinating disease with diagnostic and therapeutic challenges. We report a 50-year old woman with TDD successfully treated with decompressive craniectomy and corticosteroids. The patient presented with seizures, subacute progressive hemispheric syndrome,[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis

    We present three patients with a clinical course and cerebrospinal fluid findings consistent with a diagnosis of primary progressive multiple sclerosis (PPMS). Extensive and repeated magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) examinations showed only diffuse abnormality in brain and spinal cord, but no focal lesions. We propose[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Multi-Infarct Dementia

    . • MRI scan of the brain is always abnormal in symptomatic patients and shows signs of small deep infarcts and leukoencephalopathy. • CADASIL is an autosomal dominant disorder[medlink.com] Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) - An MRI scan uses radio waves and a magnetic field to create detailed images of the brain.[virginiamason.org] Sometimes a contrast material is injected to help find any abnormalities in the brain's blood vessels.[virginiamason.org]
