18 Possible Causes for Blurring of the Gray White Junction

  • Subcortical Band Heterotopia

    The method was introduced to improve the visualization of blurred gray-white matter junctions associated with focal cortical dysplasia but was found to be applicable also[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Astrocytoma

    […] of gray white junction and expansion of the infiltrated brain areas Variable textures: firm, soft, gelatinous, granular Variable microcystic change imparting a spongy appearance[pathologyoutlines.com] […] substantial prognostic difference between WHO grades II and III IDH1 / 2 mutated astrocytomas ( Acta Neuropathol 2015;129:867 ) Gross description Ill defined neoplasm with blurring[pathologyoutlines.com]

  • Spinal Trauma

    The authors noted that standard T2 sequences show extensive edema but lead to blurring or even loss of the ability to discern the graywhite junction acutely.[academic.oup.com] Standard magnetic resonance sequences demonstrate edema and hemorrhage within cord parenchyma, blurring the graywhite junction, and although the site of injury is grossly[academic.oup.com] The authors noted a strong inverse correlation between neurological recovery and the amount of ventrolateral white matter spared by the insult.[academic.oup.com]

  • Isolated Focal Cortical Dysplasia Type 2
  • Epidermal Nevus Syndrome

    Open left insula, blurred white-gray matter junction, and heterotopias ( arrows ) can be seen.[ajnr.org] B, FLAIR image shows the left hemimegalencephaly, enlarged lateral ventricle, dysmyelinated white matter, blurred white-gray matter junction, and plate-like thickened cortex[ajnr.org]

  • Oligodendroglioma of the Brain

    […] matter Blurring of the gray-white junction is common Calcifications may lead to a gritty texture; in extreme cases dense calcifications can present as intratumoral stones[pathologyoutlines.com] 1338 ) Chemotherapy or radiation therapy in some cases Gross description Typically a soft, relatively well defined, greyish pink mass arising in the cortex or subcortical white[pathologyoutlines.com]

  • Familial Porencephaly

    Other congenital defects that could appear like schizencephaly on neuroimaging include focal cortical dysplasia [17] (seen as cortical thickening, blurring of white matter-gray[npmj.org] […] matter junction with abnormal architecture of subcortical layer) could appear similar to the closed lip form (Type I) where the cleft when present does not extend completely[npmj.org]

  • Hypochondroplasia

    […] matter junction blurring in the hippocampus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] resonance imaging showed abnormal anteriorly posteriorly infolding in the hippocampus and abnormally oriented parahippocampus sulci, and additional cortical rim dysplasia with gray-white[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Epilepsia Partialis Continua

    Enhanced visualization of blurred gray-white matter junctions in focal cortical dysplasia by voxel-based 3D MRI analysis.[frontiersin.org] There, at the bottom of a sulci, an enfolding in the brain, was “a little bit of blurring between the junction of gray and white matter,” says Soares, what he knew was a shadowy[hopkinsmedicine.org] The highlighted region might correlate with graywhite blurring on the underlying MRI.[frontiersin.org]

  • Isolated Arhinencephaly

    […] of the graywhite junction ( 14 ) ( Fig. 8.5 ).[radiologykey.com] On imaging, multiple abnormalities are detected including focal or hemispheric enlargement of the cortex, which appears dysmorphic, with broad gyri, shallow sulci, and blurring[radiologykey.com]
