131 Possible Causes for Brain CT Scan showing Enlarged Ventricles, Prominent Sulci

  • Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus

    NPH is suggested when ventricular dilation is out of proportion to the prominence of the sulci, but this is a subjective call.[docneuro.com]

  • Cerebral Cortical Atrophy

    Imaging wise feature of cerebral cortical atrophy Generalized prominence of hemisphere cortical sulci on CT or MRI in mild cases.[neuroradiologycases.com] Characteristic features include prominent cerebral sulci (i.e. cortical atrophy) and v entriculomegaly (i.e. central atrophy) without bulging of the third ventricular recesses[radiopaedia.org] Characteristic features include prominent cerebral sulci (i.e. cortical atrophy) and ventriculomegaly (i.e. central atrophy) without bulging of the third ventricular recesses[homeoguru.com]

  • 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]

  • Communicating Hydrocephalus

    When a patient presents with symptoms of hydrocephalus, a thorough neurological examination is performed, followed by a ct or MRi brain scan. these imaging studies may show[nni.com.sg] CT and MRI reveal bilateral extracerebral fluid collections, prominent sulci, normal ventricles, and no evidence of compression of the brain.[thamburaj.com] Pre-contrast axial CT Sulci and gyri are very prominent due to cortical atrophy, unlike in obstructive hydrocephalus where there is effacement of sulci and gyri.[stritch.luc.edu]

  • Obstructive Hydrocephalus

    MRI or CT scans can show signs CSF build-up, such as enlarged ventricles.[headwayabiaustralia.org] Pre-contrast axial CT Sulci and gyri are very prominent due to cortical atrophy, unlike in obstructive hydrocephalus where there is effacement of sulci and gyri.[stritch.luc.edu] Brain scans can also help doctors determine the cause of hydrocephalus, and rule out other possible reasons for the symptoms.[headwayabiaustralia.org]

  • Tetrahydrobiopterin Deficiency

    sulci and fissures, subcortical cystlike lesions shown on T1-weighted images, and hyperintense lesions at the periventricular white matter shown on T2-weighted images ( 5[ajnr.org] Neuroimaging studies, such as MR imaging, may have helped to evaluate brain damage in patients with BH4 deficiency, such as symmetrical calcifications in the lentiform nuclei, prominent[ajnr.org]

  • Aromatic L-Amino Acid Decarboxylase Deficiency

    Of 15 MR examinations, the major changes included 6 (40%) with diffusely prominent bilateral frontal sulci, 10 (67%) with prominent frontal horns, and 12 (80%) with hypomyelination[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Dihydropyrimidine Dehydrogenase Deficiency

    Head MRI showed prominent sulci and abnormal T2 prolongation in the cerebral white matter and brainstem.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Thus, DPD deficiency may feature prominent brain abnormalities involving the cerebral white matter and brainstem.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

    OMIM : 57 COXPD11 is a severe multisystemic autosomal recessive disorder characterized by neonatal hypotonia and lactic acidosis. Affected individuals may have respiratory insufficiency, foot deformities, or seizures, and all reported patients have died in infancy. Biochemical studies show deficiencies of multiple[…][malacards.org]
