51 Possible Causes for Cerebrospinal Fluid Abnormality, Prominent Sulci

  • Leptomeningeal Metastasis

    The lesions were more prominent in the cerebellar sulci compared with in the cerebral sulci.[ajnr.org] Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) was abnormal in all cases analyzed (five of six) but CSF cytology was definitive in only 3.[n.neurology.org] Cibas ES, Malkin MG, Posner JB, Melamed MR: Detection of DNA abnormalities by flow cytometry in cells from cerebrospinal fluid.[link.springer.com]

  • Hypertensive Encephalopathy

    There was complete resolution of cerebral edema in all patients and mild interval prominence of the cerebral sulci, which can indicate cerebral volume loss, in three out of[bloodjournal.org] Both computerized tomography of the head and cerebrospinal fluid examination were normal.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Reexamination of MRI and cerebrospinal fluid test also revealed clear improvement of the above abnormalities.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    […] periventricular topographic distribution, whereas McKee et al 8 noted that the initial pathological changes were perivascular and at the base of the sulci and in the later[doi.org] Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) testing revealed no abnormalities except for an elevated neopterin concentration at 143.17 pmol/mL (normal 30 pmol/mL).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abnormal distribution of lead in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis. Reestimation of lead in the cerebrospinal fluid. J Neurol Sci, 1980; 48: 413–418.[dx.doi.org]

  • Meningovascular Syphilis

    Holland et al reported the CT scan findings in 3 patients with meningovascular syphilis.

  • 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] […] antibodies in the cerebrospinal fluid.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Immunoglobulin G antibodies against measles were strongly positive, with a high relative cerebrospinal fluid/serum ratio.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Primary Amebic Meningoencephalitis

    CT head showed prominent sulci suggestive of cerebral atrophy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) cell count and chemistries were markedly abnormal, with a white blood cell count of 8150 cells/mm 3 (90% neutrophils), red blood cell count of 800[doi.org] Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) opening pressure was 380 mmH 2 O.[ruralneuropractice.com]

  • Neurosyphilis

    Holland et al reported the CT scan findings in 3 patients with meningovascular syphilis. [2] Less prominence of the cortical sulci in our first case suggested cortical atrophy[ijdvl.com] Cerebrospinal fluid abnormalities in patients with syphilis: association with clinical and laboratory features.[link.springer.com] Also, there was a marked diffuse cortical atrophy, more accentuated fronto-temporo-insular, with the enlargement of the sulci, of the anterior interemispheric fissure and[tmj.ro]

  • 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] We experienced a case with type 1 diabetes and recurrent severe hypoglycemic coma who showed a central brain atrophy and an abnormal cerebrospinal fluid flow, suggesting normal[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The abnormal buildup of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) can lead to pressure on the brain. Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is a clear fluid that surrounds the spinal cord and brain.[neurosurgicalassociatespc.com]

  • Meningoencephalitis

    MRI of the brain showed some effacement of cortical sulci, rendering the vessels prominent, with increased T2-weighted signal diffusely scattered throughout both hemispheres[academic.oup.com] It is concluded that the analysis of cerebrospinal fluid is a useful ancillary aid in the investigation of abnormal mental states in neonatal calves and a sensitive test for[veterinaryrecord.bmj.com] Lumbar puncture revealed a pressure of over 300 mm H2 O and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) confirmed a white blood cell count of 65/mm(3) . The CSF glucose level was 0 mg/dL.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Chronic Daily Headaches

    Finally ( viii ), we found that (like CSD) the spreading phenomenon did not cross prominent sulci (e.g., the parieto-occipital sulcus).[doi.org] ; (3) the levels of lactate, pyruvate and taurine in blood and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF); (4) the number of times high-intensity lesions were confirmed with brain MRI in patients[doi.org] 50% or greater reduction in frequency of stroke-like episodes during the trial period; (2) the number of attacks with focal neurological deficits with or without brain MRI abnormalities[doi.org]
