577 Possible Causes for Cortical Thickening

  • Acromegaly

    CT, MRI, or skull x-rays disclose cortical thickening, enlargement of the frontal sinuses, and enlargement and erosion of the sella turcica.[] Cortical bone thickens (as measured by the metacarpal index and histomorphometric parameters) and its porosity is diminished.[] cortical bone thickness of lower limbs.[]

  • Erdheim-Chester Disease

    Cortical thickening of the skull was noted.[] Skeletal involvement bilateral, symmetric metaphyseal and diaphyseal sclerosis 1,2 increased uptake on Tc-MDP bone scan 7 cortical thickening Visceral lung (see: pulmonary[] Radiographs of the lower limbs showed a patchy increase in density primarily in the diaphyseal regions of the femur and tibia with some associated cortical thickening.[]

  • Congenital Cortical Hyperostoses

    Distinct skeletal dysplasias feature variable degrees of cortical thickening.[] Frontal view shows cortical thickening of the mandible, which is depicted as a double contour of the cortex due to subperiosteal new bone formation.[] […] hyperostosis a syndrome seen in infants under six months of age, marked by fever, arthralgias, and swelling and cortical thickening of facial, trunk, and long bones.[]

  • Autoimmune Encephalopathy

    As the older term limbic encephalitis implies, the most common location of involvement is the mesial temporal lobes and limbic systems, typically manifested by cortical thickening[]

  • Eructation

    Successive MRI brain scans disclosed a cortical thickening on left collateral sulcus extending to the ipsilateral fusiforme gyrus, which was non-progressive in nature (figure[]

  • Tumoral Calcinosis

    Caffey disease (CD) is defined by recurrent episodes of painful soft tissue swelling and cortical thickening of the underlying bones.[]

  • Gigantism

    Markedly thickened gyri of the left inferior frontal, insular, and temporal cortex were found grossly.[] CT, MRI, or skull x-rays disclose cortical thickening, enlargement of the frontal sinuses, and enlargement and erosion of the sella turcica.[] An exceptional type of cortical dysplasia is described in the brain of a 32-year-old woman who had received radiation therapy for a large pituitary adenoma 6 years before[]

  • Stuve-Wiedemann Syndrome

    The skeletal radiographic changes include short and broad long bones, large metaphyses, internal cortical thickening, and angulation primarily of tibiae and femora, but also[] The long bones display cortical thickening and an abnormal trabecular pattern. The metaphyses are wide, flared, rarefied and striated. read more[] SWS is characterized by bowing of the lower limbs, with internal cortical thickening, wide metaphyses with abnormal trabecular pattern, and camptodactyly.[]

  • Laron Syndrome

    Note the cortical thickening and the narrowing of the atlantoaxial joint, possibly compatible with degenerative changes.[] Note the mild compression of the subarachnoid space at the C1-C2 level owing to cortical thickening and sclerosis of the dens.[] CT scans were available in three of these patients (patients 5, 7, and 9) and confirmed the presence of cortical thickening of the dens and the atlas, with narrowing of the[]

  • Mulibrey Nanism Syndrome

    thickening of long bones Highset hyoid bones Variable fibrous dysplasia especially in tibia[] thickening, and fibrous dysplasia of long bone do not occur in SRS.[] Hypoadrenocorticism Neurologic Abnormality Large cerebral ventricles Intrauterine development Hydrops fetalis Endocrine and/or Exocrine Hypothyroidism Ovarian tumor Skeletal Cortical[]
