347 Possible Causes for Atrophy of the Caudate

  • Chorea Acanthocytosis Syndrome

    The caudate nucleus head atrophy demonstrated a dorsal to ventral pattern (marked by yellow), while the putamen presented a caudate to rostral mode (marked by black).[journal.frontiersin.org] Her peripheral blood smears showed acanthocytosis and magnetic resonance imaging revealed atrophied head of caudate nuclei and putaminal hyperintensities on T2-weighted and[dovepress.com] CT scan demonstrated atrophy of the caudate nucleus in our patient.[panafrican-med-journal.com]

  • Huntington Disease-Like 3

    On imaging, it is classically characterised 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] Imaging features are similar to ChAc, that is, atrophy of the caudate nucleus and putamen.[movementdisorders.org]

  • Presenile Dementia With Bone Cysts

  • Classic Progressive Supranuclear Palsy Syndrome

    Multiple System Atrophy This is a movement disorder that is resistant to Levodopa. It causes atrophy of the caudate nucleus and putamen.[lecturio.com] Previous studies have reported that UPSRS III score was correlated with atrophy in the caudate and motor cingulate cortices ( Cordato et al., 2005 ).[journal.frontiersin.org] Olivopontocerebellar atrophy is caused by cerebellar degeneration. Results in ataxia, eye and somatic movement abnormalities, dysarthria and rigidity.[lecturio.com]

  • 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 characterised 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]

  • Mild Cognitive Impairment

    The present case shows a slowly progressive disease with caudate atrophy and characteristic brain calcifications.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] He showed caudate atrophy and four types of intracranial calcification in the hippocampus (dot-like), cerebellar white matter (vague-mass), occipital cortices (laminar), and[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

HD.[neuropathology-web.org] On imaging, it is classically characterised 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]

  • Gangliosidosis

    (C) Axial T2-weighted images again show hypointense pallida (white arrows) with mild progression, compared to previous scan, putaminal hyperintensities, atrophy of the caudate[movementdisorders.org] […] nuclei, and diffuse cortical atrophy with ventriculomegaly.[movementdisorders.org]

  • Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis
