11 Possible Causes for Agitated Delirium, Prominent Sulci

  • Leptomeningeal Metastasis

    The lesions were more prominent in the cerebellar sulci compared with in the cerebral sulci.[ajnr.org] This revealed leptomeningeal metastases with contrast enhancement, more prominent in the cerebellar sulci, and changes consistent with acute hydrocephalus, which likely accounted[ajnr.org] On postcontrast T1-weighted images, widespread leptomeningeal infiltrations were evident in the cerebellar and cerebral sulci.[ajnr.org]

  • Meningoencephalitis

    MRI of the brain showed some effacement of cortical sulci, rendering the vessels prominent, with increased T2-weighted signal diffusely scattered throughout both hemispheres[academic.oup.com]

  • Hypertensive Encephalopathy

    There was complete resolution of cerebral edema in all patients and mild interval prominence of the cerebral sulci, which can indicate cerebral volume loss, in three out of[bloodjournal.org]

  • Marchiafava Bignami Disease

    Findings CT shows mild prominence of the ventricles and sulci consistent with mild generalized cerebral volume loss.[neuroradiologyonthenet.blogspot.com]

  • AIDS-associated Meningoencephalitis

    MRI of the brain showed some effacement of cortical sulci, rendering the vessels prominent, with increased T2-weighted signal diffusely scattered throughout both hemispheres[cid.oxfordjournals.org]

  • Subacute Sclerosing Panencephalitis

    They can range from hyperintensities in the parietal and occipital region, brain stem lesions, and marked atrophy, causing prominence of sulci.[cureus.com]

  • Primary Amebic Meningoencephalitis

    CT head showed prominent sulci suggestive of cerebral atrophy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • West Nile Encephalitis

    Arrows indicate subtle enhancement in the sulci. B and C, FLAIR images show increased signal intensity in the sulci, more prominent on the left than on the right.[ajnr.org]

  • Alcohol Dementia

    It reduces agitation and helps prevent some withdrawal symptoms, seizures, and delirium tremens.[merckmanuals.com] The CT showed prominent sulci and gyri with deep white matter changes. There were no other abnormalities.[gponline.com] Delirium tremens can be life threatening and is treated aggressively to control the high fever and severe agitation.[merckmanuals.com]

  • Sener Syndrome
