Did you mean: Ferritin Decreased, Hyperintensities in the Globus Pallidus (T2-Weighted, Pyramidal Tract Signs

  • Hallervorden-Spatz Syndrome

    Table-1: Diagnostic features of Hallervorden spatz disease [11] Obligate Features Collaborate Features Exclusion Features Onset during first two decades Pyramidal tract signs[] This virtually pathognomonic radiographic abnormality, called the eye-of-the-tiger sign, comprises hyperintensities within a hypointense medial globus pallidus on T2-weighted[] Medical genetics consultation Management Iron chelating agents, such as desferrioxamine and deferasiox, are sometimes used to decrease serum ferritin concentration, decrease[]

  • Neuroferritinopathy

    tract signs, and psychiatric symptoms.[] pallidus, on T2-weighted images.[] […] serum ferritin, and negative genetic testing for other more common movement disorders such as Huntington’s disease.[]

  • Neurodegeneration with Brain Iron Accumulation

    . • Begins in childhood • Profound dystonia, dysarthria, spasticity and pyramidal tract signs • Pigmentary retinopathy, leading to night blindness and visual field constriction[] Even before the globus pallidus hypointensity developed, patients with mutations could be distinguished by the presence of isolated globus pallidus hyperintensity on T2-weighted[] Serum ferritin levels are frequently decreased. 26 Neuroimaging of NFT may demonstrate high T2 signal intensity in the basal ganglia early in the course of the disease.[]

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    Autosomal dominant juvenile amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and distal hereditary motor neuronopathy with pyramidal tract signs: synonyms for the same disorder?[] Blasco, Biological follow‐up in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis: decrease in creatinine levels and increase in ferritin levels predict poor prognosis, European Journal of Neurology[] Signs of pyramid release are not always marked and, only recently, non-invasive tests to reveal cortical spinal tract commitment have been incorporated into the medical practice[]

  • Binswanger Disease

    The bilateral cerebral white matter and globus pallidus appeared hyperintense on T2-weighted imaging (Figures 5 and 6). 5) Figure 5. CO poisoning(FLAIR image) Figure 6.[] The hippocampus, cerebral white matter, basal ganglion, and other areas appear hyperintense on T2-weighted imaging. CO poisoning: Delayed diffuse demyelination.[] No contrast enhancement effect is evident. (4) Poisoning and metabolic disorders Hypoxic encephalopathy: Diffusion-weighted imaging is useful for diagnosis.[]

  • Central Pontine Myelinolysis

    In (CPM), the initial signs include dysarthria and dysphagia (secondary to corticobulbar fiber involvement), and flaccid quadriparesis (from pyramidal tract involvement) which[] […] of Globus Pallidus (broad arrow), suggestive of Extrapontine myelinolysis.[] weighted magnetic resonance scan image showing bilaterally symmetrical hyperintensities in caudate nucleus (small, thin arrow), putamen (long arrow), with sparing of globus[]

  • Friedreich Ataxia

    tract signs, scoliosis, and in some, cardiomyopathy, diabetes mellitus, visual loss and defective hearing.[] MRI measurements Clusters of iron cause local nonhomogeneity in the magnetic field and therefore decrease the MRI signal of surrounding water.[] FRDA patients have normal serum iron and ferritin levels. 97 In addition, it has been shown in in vitro studies that desferrioxamine in the presence of reduced iron causes[]

  • Superficial Siderosis of the Central Nervous System

    The clinical features include sensorineural deafness, ataxia and pyramidal tract signs.[] After surgery, the levels of CSF-t-tau and CSF-p-tau were markedly reduced while CSF-iron and CSF-ferritin had not decreased.[] On the basis of our cases and a review of the literature, the majority of patients manifest sensorineural hearing loss in addition to cerebellar dysfunction, pyramidal tract[]

  • Alzheimer Disease

    , A M Saunders, D Schmechel, M Pericak-Vance, J Enghild, G S Salvesen, and A D Roses Abstract Apolipoprotein E is immunochemically localized to the senile plaques, vascular amyloid, and neurofibrillary tangles of Alzheimer disease. In vitro, apolipoprotein E in cerebrospinal fluid binds to synthetic beta A4 peptide (the[…][]

  • Pallidopyramidal Syndrome

    […] of early-onset, progressive parkinsonism with pyramidal tract signs has been known as pallido-pyramidal or parkinsonian-pyramidal syndrome since the first description by[] Abstract Background: The combination of early-onset, progressive parkinsonism with pyramidal tract signs has been known as pallido-pyramidal or parkinsonian-pyramidal syndrome[] The phenotype associated with FBXO7 mutations consisted of early-onset, progressive parkinsonism and pyramidal tract signs, thereby matching clinically the pallido-pyramidal[]
