  • 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] During the end stages of disease, severe spasticity, progressive cognitive decline, and visual impairment result in a vegetative state.[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]

  • GM2-Gangliosidosis

    Recent MRI showed progression of the putaminal T2 hyperintensities [Figure 1] a and an abnormal mineralization of the globus pallidus on susceptibility weighted imaging sequences[neurologyindia.com] Death is usually by age 15 years because of infection and is preceded by several years in a vegetative state with decerebrate rigidity.[emedicine.medscape.com] Cranial magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) done 2 years back showed bilateral posterior putaminal hyperintensities on T2-weighted and fluid attenuated inversion recovery sequences[neurologyindia.com]

  • Mitochondrial Membrane Protein-Associated Neurodegeneration

    Key Diagnostic Features: Once the parkinsonian symptoms appear, brain MRI shows hypointensity in the region of substantia nigra (SN) and globus pallidus (GP) on T2-weighted[ajnr.org] The patient was continued on physical therapy, baclofen, and nutritional support but has, by now, progressed to a vegetative state.[annalsofian.org] pallidus, on T2-weighted images.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Beta-Propeller Protein-Associated Neurodegeneration

  • 2-Hydroxyglutaric Aciduria

    In 43 patients (77%) the globus pallidus was more hyperintense on the T2-weighted MR images than the caudate nucleus and putamen ( , Fig 5 ).[pubs.rsna.org] Boys develop normally until the onset of cognitive decline and progressive neurologic deficits which lead to a vegetative state, blindness, seizures and death often within[rarediseases.org] The globus pallidus was always homogeneously affected ( , Fig 5 ).[pubs.rsna.org]

  • Mercury Poisoning

    The T2-weighted MRI images of the patient's brain initially showed multiple hyperintense lesions in cerebral white matter, left globus pallidus, and putamen, which also improved[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Concluding Remarks Here, we present a case of acute MeHg poisoning leading to a persistent vegetative state.[frontiersin.org] She was in a near-vegetative state all her life.
