198 Possible Causes for Atrophy of the Caudate, Putamen Atrophy

  • Chorea Acanthocytosis Syndrome

    MR imaging of the brain showed atrophy of bilateral striata, mildly increased signal intensity of the putamen on T2-weighted imaging, and cerebral atrophy and cerebellar atrophy[ajnr.org] 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]

  • Chorea

    Magnetic resonance imaging revealed atrophy of the caudate nucleus (arrowhead) and putamen (arrow), with enlarged ventricles, findings suggestive of Huntington's chorea.[nejm.org] Neuropathology Grossly, the Huntington’s disease brain shows significant atrophy of the head of caudate and putamen, and to a lesser extent, the cortex, globus pallidus, substantia[pmj.bmj.com] Neuroimaging showed bilateral caudate atrophy and nerve conduction study showed motor axonal neuropathy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Striatonigral Degeneration

    Abstract We report a patient with striatonigral degeneration in whom T2-weighted MRI imaging revealed low signal and atrophy in the putamen.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] of the striatum, especially the caudate nucleus Atrophy occurs in the putamen and nucleus accumbens, with degeneration usually affecting the striatal neurons of the indirect[brainaacn.org] The following variables were evaluated: thickness of the mesencephalon compact pars, hypointense signal in the putamen, degree of brain atrophy, lesions in the mesencephalon[rb.org.br]

  • 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] In addition, the MRI can reveal signal increase and atrophy of the midbrain and/or globus pallidus, poor differentiation of the substantia nigra, and atrophy of the putamen[eyewiki.aao.org]
