136 Possible Causes for Hypodensity of the White Matter

  • Binswanger Disease

    The radiological pattern of hypodensity of the white matter on CT scan (or an increased MRI signal), albeit much debated, seems to be more closely associated with hypertension[karger.com] Six of these showed severe white matter hypodensity, low grade atrophy, and dilated ventricles.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] matter hypodensity on computed tomography (CT).[journals.lww.com]

  • Cerebral Thrombosis

    On the left images demonstrating hypodensity in the white matter and less pronounced in the gray matter of the left temporal lobe.[radiologyassistant.nl]

  • Skull Fracture

    Subdural hematomas in infants are sometimes accompanied by brain swelling, hypodensity, and loss of gray-white matter differentiation in the underlying hemisphere.[neuropathology-web.org]

  • Pseudo-Zellweger Syndrome

    […] of the white matter.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] classical Zellweger syndrome, and cranial CT scans showed typical disproportionate enlargement of the occipital horns of the lateral ventricles (colpocephaly) with marked hypodensity[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Ependymoma

    […] typically are isointense to hypointense relative to white matter 7 T2 hyperintense to white matter more reliable in differentiating tumor margins than non-contrast T1-weighted[radiopaedia.org] CT coarse calcification is common (50%) cystic areas (50%) solid component iso- to hypodense heterogeneous enhancement variable hemorrhage MRI T1 solid portions of ependymoma[radiopaedia.org]

  • Subdural Hematoma

    Subdural hematomas in infants are sometimes accompanied by brain swelling, hypodensity, and loss of gray-white matter differentiation in the underlying hemisphere.[neuropathology-web.org] In such cases, subtle signs of bleeding—such as effacement of sulci or medial displacement of the junction between gray matter and white matter—may be apparent.[en.wikipedia.org] Fresh subdural bleeding is hyperdense, but becomes more hypodense over time due to dissolution of cellular elements.[en.wikipedia.org]

  • Marchiafava Bignami Disease

    Computed tomography scans showed progressive white matter destruction over a period of 8 months, ranging from diffuse hypodensities to well-delineated, strongly hypodense[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] white matter lesions.[n.neurology.org] […] areas in the central hemispheric white matter of both frontal and parietal lobes and in the corpus callosum.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Benzodiazepine Overdose

    A computed tomography (CT) examination findings include hypodensity in the affected area of the white brain matter, correlating to the clinical picture found in MRI.[symptoma.com]

  • Metachromatic Leukodystrophy

    A computed tomographic scan of the brain demonstrated hypodense areas of white matter suggestive of demyelination.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The CT shows symmetrical hypodensities of the white matter whereas brain atrophy is only mild.[alzheimer-europe.org] Computed tomography (CT) of the brain showed hypodensities in the corpus callosum and bilateral periventricular and deep cerebral white matter suggestive of neurodegenerative[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
