17 Possible Causes for Low Density White Matter on CT Scan

  • Fukuyama Muscular Dystrophy

    BACKGROUND: One of the main complications in patients with muscular dystrophies is cardiac dysfunction. The literature on cardiac involvement in patients with Fukuyama congenital muscular dystrophy (FCMD) is limited. AIM: To compare cardiac involvement between patients with FCMD and Duchenne muscular dystrophy[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Menkes Disease

    The characteristic signs on the images were: high echo level regions in the cerebrum as detected by brain ultrasonography, low density areas of white matter detected by CT[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] scan, and low signal intensities of white matter by both T1 and balanced MR images.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Neonatal Adrenoleukodystrophy

    A CT-scan showed low density of cerebral white matter and MR examination white matter changes, a thin corpus callosum, cerebellar malformation and dorsal displacement of the[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acrodynia

    A brain CT scan revealed a point calcification at the right caudate nucleus and several bilateral areas of low density in the white matter. EEG was normal.[doi.org]

  • Bradykinesia

    CT scan revealed a recent haemorrhage deep in the right hemisphere white matter in addition to a low density change in the left basal ganglia reflecting the site of previous[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cerebral Edema

    The low density is due to dilution of all the constituents of white matter.[symptoma.com] The test of choice to investigate a patient with cerebral edema is a CT scan. The areas of edema appear as low density on an enhanced CT scan.[symptoma.com] The CT scan may appear blurry and it may be hard to decipher any specific anatomy due to the increased water accumulation.[symptoma.com]

  • Classic Maple Syrup Urine Disease

    A CT scan on admission showed widespread low density change within the cerebral white matter which extended to involve the globus pallidus bilaterally (Fig 1 ).[bjo.bmj.com]

  • Empty Sella Syndrome

    CT scan of the head • It showed a small region of white matter low density in the right frontal lobe. The sella turcica appeared nearly empty.[jneuro.com] Investigations Blood work • Mostly normal except low free testosterone and slightly low luteinizing hormone.[jneuro.com]

  • Meningioma
