34 Possible Causes for Hyperintensities in the Globus Pallidus (T2-Weighted)

Did you mean: Hyperintensities in the Globus Pallidus (T2-Weighted

  • Hallervorden-Spatz Syndrome

    This virtually pathognomonic radiographic abnormality, called the eye-of-the-tiger sign, comprises hyperintensities within a hypointense medial globus pallidus on T2-weighted[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] pattern of hyperintensity within the hypointense medial globus pallidus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In all patients with pantothenate kinase-associated neurodegeneration, whether classic or atypical, T2-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain showed a specific[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Neurodegeneration with Brain Iron Accumulation

    Even before the globus pallidus hypointensity developed, patients with mutations could be distinguished by the presence of isolated globus pallidus hyperintensity on T2-weighted[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] ) in specific brain regions (including globus pallidus interna and externa, substantia nigra, thalamus, putamen, and caudate) on T1- and T2-weighted studies, presence of the[ajnr.org] […] surrounded by a rim of hypointensity on coronal or transverse T2-weighted images of the globus pallidus.[orpha.net]

  • 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.[plaza.umin.ac.jp] The hippocampus, cerebral white matter, basal ganglion, and other areas appear hyperintense on T2-weighted imaging. CO poisoning: Delayed diffuse demyelination.[plaza.umin.ac.jp] No contrast enhancement effect is evident. (4) Poisoning and metabolic disorders Hypoxic encephalopathy: Diffusion-weighted imaging is useful for diagnosis.[plaza.umin.ac.jp]

  • Wernicke Encephalopathy

    […] in the globus pallidus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] T1-weighted MR image depicts symmetric hyperintense foci in the globus pallidus (arrows).[doi.org] Magnetic resonance imaging with gadolinium enhancement showed brain lesions consistent with Wernicke encephalopathy, but also symmetric hyperintensities on T2-weighted images[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Alexander Disease

    In addition, there are symmetrical hyperintensity signals in the posterior part of the globus pallidus on T2-weighted images in the two symptomatic patients, which are rarely[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Hyperintensity signals in the medulla oblongata were detected in the two symptomatic patients, but not in the asymptomatic patient.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Alpers Syndrome

    The right parietal cortex appears normal in the T2-weighted images.[ajnr.org] Discussion MR imaging in patients with chronic hepatic encephalopathy shows symmetric hyperintensities in globus pallidus and other basal ganglia structures on T1-weighted[ajnr.org]

  • McLeod Neuroacanthocytosis Syndrome

    […] pattern of hyperintensity within the hypointense medial globus pallidus.[scienceopen.com] In all patients with pantothenate kinase-associated neurodegeneration, whether classic or atypical, T2-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain showed a specific[scienceopen.com]

  • Central Pontine Myelinolysis

    weighted magnetic resonance scan image showing bilaterally symmetrical hyperintensities in caudate nucleus (small, thin arrow), putamen (long arrow), with sparing of globus[en.wikipedia.org] pallidus (broad arrow), suggestive of extrapontine myelinolysis (osmotic demyelination syndrome) Symptoms depend on the regions of the brain involved.[en.wikipedia.org] […] following treatment in individuals with chronic, severe hyponatremia who have made intracellular adaptations to the prevailing hypotonicity.

  • Neurofibromatosis Type 1

    Rarely, hyperintensities and mild mass effect have been reported in the globus pallidus on T1-weighted images.[emedicine.com] If the T2 lesions show enhancement, glioma development should be suspected.[emedicine.com]

  • Neuromyelitis Optica

    To aid in diagnosis, other MR imaging features include the following: cerebral atrophy; hyperintensities on T2-weighted images in the dentate nuclei, globus pallidus, substantia[pubs.rsna.org]
