208 Possible Causes for Atrophy of the Caudate

  • Huntington Disease-Like 3

    […] and bilateral caudate atrophy.[orpha.net] On imaging, it is classically characterized by atrophy of the caudate nucleus with concomitant enlargement of the frontal horns of the lateral ventricles.[radiopaedia.org] Mechanism of Injury / Pathological Process The most obvious neuropathology in HD occurs within the neostriatum, comprising gross atrophy of the caudate nucleus and putamen[physio-pedia.com]

  • Presenile Dementia With Bone Cysts

    […] time Chorea Prolonged partial thromboplastin time Alzheimer disease Visual hallucinations Nevus Involuntary movements Vomiting Hydrocephalus Weight loss Gait disturbance Caudate[mendelian.co] atrophy Abdominal distention Primitive reflex Senile plaques Hepatomegaly Abnormality of movement Failure to thrive Immunodeficiency Splenomegaly Histiocytosis Hemophagocytosis[mendelian.co]

  • Juvenile Huntington Disease

    RESULTS: Atrophy of the caudate nuclei was identified in all Huntington patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] RESULTS Atrophy of the caudate nuclei was identified in all Huntington patients.[ajnr.org] Brain imaging is optional, but if performed, may show atrophy of the caudate nucleus or (in very young children) the cerebellum, or diffuse brain atrophy.[secure.ssa.gov]

  • McLeod Neuroacanthocytosis Syndrome

    We emphasize the prominent neurological picture characterized by a choreic syndrome with atrophy of the caudate nucleus on MRI, psychiatric disturbances, peripheral nerve[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] MRI and CT might show dilatation of anterior horn of lateral ventricles and atrophy of the caudate nuclei.[teachneuro.blogspot.com] Neuroimaging of brain using 3 Tesla MRI showed diffuse cerebral atrophy with significant caudate atrophy.[ijcasereportsandimages.com]

  • Medial Sclerosis

    […] collateral white matter and entorhinal cortex atrophy thalamic and caudate atrophy ipsilateral cerebral hypertrophy contralateral cerebellar hemiatrophy loss of grey-white[radiopaedia.org] […] the cingulate gyrus increased signal and/or reduction in the volume of the amygdala reduction in the volume of the subiculum dilatation of temporal horn and temporal lobe atrophy[radiopaedia.org]

  • Liver Cirrhosis

    Appearances include: surface nodularity: (88% sensitive, 82-95% specific 5 ) overall coarse and heterogeneous echotexture segmental hypertrophy/atrophy (see above) caudate[radiopaedia.org] […] lobe and lateral segments of left lobe ( segments II & III ) with concomitant atrophy of the posterior segments ( VI & VII ) of the right lobe.[radiopaedia.org] See article: caudate–right lobe ratio (C/RL). Imaging is not reliable enough to differentiate between various underlying etiologies.[radiopaedia.org]

  • Cholangitis

    CT contour abnormalities and atrophy (see above) marked caudate lobe hypertrophy the atrophied liver is of lower density than the hypertrophied caudate lobe 1 multiple linear[radiopaedia.org] The end result of PSC is cirrhosis which is usually characterized by a markedly distorted biliary tract with atrophy of the entire liver with the exception of the caudate[radiopaedia.org] Atrophy involving the left lobe is a feature which somewhat distinguishes it from cirrhosis from other causes, in which the left lobe is usually hypertrophied 1 .[radiopaedia.org]

  • Portal Cirrhosis

    Appearances include: surface nodularity: (88% sensitive, 82-95% specific 5 ) overall coarse and heterogeneous echotexture segmental hypertrophy/atrophy (see above) caudate[radiopaedia.org] […] lobe and lateral segments of left lobe ( segments II & III ) with concomitant atrophy of the posterior segments ( VI & VII ) of the right lobe.[radiopaedia.org] See article: caudate–right lobe ratio (C/RL). Imaging is not reliable enough to differentiate between various underlying etiologies.[radiopaedia.org]

  • Cerebellar Stroke

    […] or left cerebellar tracts to right caudate and thalamus. [7] Lauterbach records that 20% of patients with cerebellar lesions present as bipolar disorder.[ijpm.info] Both of them had marked vermian and cerebellar atrophy in CT scan. [6] Lauterbach analyzing 45 post-stroke patients noted mania in three patients who had lesions in left cerebellum[ijpm.info]

  • Macronodular Cirrhosis

    Appearances include: surface nodularity: (88% sensitive, 82-95% specific 5 ) overall coarse and heterogeneous echotexture segmental hypertrophy/atrophy (see above) caudate[radiopaedia.org] […] segment and caudate lobe ( Figure 2 ).[jaocr.org] […] lobe and lateral segments of left lobe ( segments II & III ) with concomitant atrophy of the posterior segments ( VI & VII ) of the right lobe.[radiopaedia.org]
