62 Possible Causes for Hemiplegia, Homonymous Hemianopsia, MRI Scan of the Brain Abnormal

  • Stroke

    hemianopsia) spatial problems with depth perception or directions such as up/down and front/back inability to localize or recognize body parts inability to understand maps[web.archive.org] Specifically, this exploratory study investigates changes in gait pattern among stroke patients with hemiparesis or hemiplegia during gait recovery.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] to identify abnormalities in the brain arteries (such as aneurysms) or other sources of bleeding, and structural MRI if this shows no cause.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Cerebral Embolism

    She suddenly developed left homonymous hemianopsia and was diagnosed with cerebral embolism.[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] The patient awoke slowly, and when awake she showed a combination of contralateral hemiplegia, and right hemianesthesia with global aphasia; the CT scan showed an ischemic[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Brain Abscess

    The patient presented with right-sided homonymous hemianopsia and right hemiparesis. Emergent surgical drainage was performed and antibiotics were administered.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The postoperative course was uneventful, but a slight left hemiplegia remained at discharge.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] MRI has higher resolution and can show early abnormalities better than CT.[merckmanuals.com]

  • Migraine

    She reported severe pain of the right hemibody just before hemiplegia that was enventually suggestive of possible epileptic seizure, justifying diagnostic video-EEG monitoring[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Imaging scans, such as a CT scan or MRI, can rule out other causes, including: tumors abnormal brain structures stroke Migraines can’t be cured, but your doctor can help you[healthline.com] A person experiencing this migraine has with temporary paralysis (hemiplegia) or neurological or sensory changes on one side of the body.[my.clevelandclinic.org]

  • Primary Central Nervous System Lymphoma

    Primary central nervous system lymphoma (PCNSL) is a rare pediatric brain tumor. A 16-year-old female patient presented to the clinic with complaints of multiple episodes of generalized tonic clonic seizures, nystagmus, and weakness on the left side of the body for 3 weeks. She had similar symptoms, waxing and[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Subdural Hematoma

    In this case, we present a patient who presented to the pediatric emergency department with new-onset seizure and hemiplegia 2 days after a roller-coaster ride.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Patients whose CT scans reveal no abnormalities but who have clinical abnormalities on examination or significant symptomatic complaints may have abnormalities on brain MRI[dx.doi.org] Historical note and terminology In 1657 Wepfer described the presence of a "bloody cyst" in the subdural space of an elderly man postmortem who had developed an aphasia and hemiplegia[medlink.com]

  • Cerebral Hemorrhage

    On the neurological examination, right homonymous hemianopsia was found.[omicsonline.org] A 63-year-old man suddenly presented with right hemiplegia and was taken to our hospital.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) can detect abnormal blood vessels, underlying tumors, and some aneurysms.[healthcommunities.com]

  • Occipital Lobe Tumor

    Clinical significance [ edit ] If one occipital lobe is damaged, the result can be homonymous hemianopsia vision loss from similarly positioned "field cuts" in each eye.[en.wikipedia.org] […] tumor in the frontal lobe may cause the following: Behavioral and emotional changes Impaired judgment Impaired sense of smell Memory loss Paralysis on one side of the body (hemiplegia[healthcommunities.com] These let doctors see inside the brain and identify any areas that look abnormal. Although both are painless, they do require children to be still.[kidshealth.org]

  • MELAS Syndrome

    Deschauer et al. 2007 described a patient presenting with occipital seizures and residual homonymous hemianopsia, headache and ataxia and carrying two heterozygous POLG1 mutations[bmcneurol.biomedcentral.com] Episodes may be followed by transient hemiplegia or hemianopia lasting a few hours to several weeks.[markalewis.com] Imaging of the brain, such as an MRI scan, is used to look for stroke-like lesions. MRI scans are also conducted to find a lactate peak in the brain.[ysjournal.com]
