269 Possible Causes for Hemiparesis, MRI Scan of the Brain Abnormal

  • Cerebral Embolism

    However, the patient then developed fever, dyspnea, and subsequent right hemiparesis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The brain MRI, which was obtained 11 hours after presentation, showed multiple 4- to 5-mm foci of abnormal increase in T2 signal and decreased T1 signal intensity involving[pediatrics.aappublications.org] She had developed sudden complete left hemiparesis due to an embolism at the carotid bifurcation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Brain Abscess

    […] here brain abscesses caused by Nocardia beijingensis in a 59-year-old-Thai male with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection presenting with progressive right sided hemiparesis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] MRI has higher resolution and can show early abnormalities better than CT.[merckmanuals.com] The first patient presented with left hemiparesis mimicking stroke and the second patient presented with neurological symptoms without fever, which was indistinguishable from[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Progressive Multifocal Leukoencephalopathy

    Almost three years later, the patient showed right-sided hemiparesis that ultimately progressed to complete hemiplegia and advancing cognitive deterioration with a poor clinical[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Two weeks later, a new MRI showed progress of signal abnormality in the cerebellum and further extension now involving the brain stem and thalami.[karger.com] Her neurological examination disclosed cognitive alterations, homonyme hemianopia to the right, aphasia, and mild right-sided hemiparesis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Stroke

    SSEH presenting as a hemiparesis is less common and in such situations, it can be mistaken for a cerebrovascular accident (CVA).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] For hemorrhagic strokes, a CT or MRI scan with intravascular contrast may be able to identify abnormalities in the brain arteries (such as aneurysms) or other sources of bleeding[en.wikipedia.org] In the Wind chapter of Donguibogam, left hemiparesis due to stroke is called Tan, a sort of Hyeol-Byeong, and right hemiparesis due to stroke is called Tan, a sort of Gi-Byeong[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cerebral Hemorrhage

    During the course of illness, the patient had an acute cerebral hemorrhage, which manifested with hemiparesis, dysarthria, and pathologic crying.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) can detect abnormal blood vessels, underlying tumors, and some aneurysms.[healthcommunities.com] Two days after the surgery, he developed left hemiparesis. CT scans showed a large cerebral hemorrhage on the right temporal lobe with midline shift by brain metastases.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Leptomeningeal Metastasis

    : The authors describe a 52-year-old man with a history of a subtotally resected right maxillary sinus ethesioneuro-epithelioma 2 years earlier who presented with a left hemiparesis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A contrast-enhanced Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan of the brain was obtained and revealed abnormal enhancement between the cerebellar folia, consistent with meningeal[pancreas.imedpub.com] Despite chemotherapy, the lesion increased in volume, which led to local pain and right hemiparesis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Glioblastoma Multiforme

    After surgery there was a significant neurological improvement, and 30 months after resection the child is alive, with mild hemiparesis and no signs of recurrence on follow-up[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] These tests may include: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computerized tomography (CT) scans produce detailed images of the brain and spine and allow doctors to detect[weillcornellbrainandspine.org] A 42-year-old man visited our clinic because of right hemiparesis and total aphasia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Rhinocerebral Mucormycosis

    She had hyperglycaemia with diabetic ketoacidosis and rapidly developed hemiparesis progressing to quadriparesis and died within 3 days of admission.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] CLINICAL PRESENTATION: We describe the case of a 16-year-old male patient with juvenile onset diabetes mellitus who presented with fever, right-sided hemiparesis, and dysarthria[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] . Carotid artery or jugular vein thrombosis causing hemiparesis. 12. RHINOCEREBRAL MUCORMYCOSIS 13.[slideshare.net]

  • Cerebral Toxoplasmosis

    The clinical picture included headaches, nuchal rigidity, and right-sided hemiparesis during a course of disseminated cutaneous herpes zoster.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] encephalitis (TE) in most advance stage HIV infected patients composed of fever, headache, alteration of consciousness with focal neurological signs/symptoms such as include hemiparesis[clinicaltrials.gov] The patient had neurological impairment, hemiparesis in left hemisphere, chronic generalized tonic crisis and aphasia, cranial CT scan was performed, finding hyperdense images[omicsonline.org]

  • Neurocysticercosis

    Del Brutto, “Neurocysticercosis and Pure Motor Hemiparesis,” Stroke, Vol. 19, No. 9, 1988, pp. 1156-1158. doi:10.1161/01.STR.19.9.1156 [ 20 ] B. N. Mishra and S. P.[scirp.org] Apart from these classical signs and symptoms, patient can come up with hemiplegia, hemiparesis, sensory loss, diplopia or other manifestations of extraocular muscle paralysis[symptoma.com] His condition was stabilized, but right hemiparesis and tremor persisted one year later. One patient was diagnosed as having gastric cancer and died during follow-up.[doi.org]
