540 Possible Causes for MRI Scan of the Brain Abnormal, Nystagmus

  • Pelizaeus-Merzbacher Disease

    […] in two patients in whom the waveform of the nystagmus was not obvious on inspection.[] Investigations MRI scan is a very useful investigation as it shows poor myelination, although this may not be apparently abnormal until about 1 year of age.[] Her psychosocial interactions were excellent and her nystagmus improved.[]

  • Arnold Chiari Malformation

    Eye movement recordings in two patients with Arnold-Chiari malfomation type 1 showed, in addition to downbeat and gaze evoked nystagmus, intermittent nystagmus of skew.[] MRI will show the abnormal CSF flow and configuration and position of the brain and spinal cord [6] .[] Examination showed horizontal-torsional jerk nystagmus in all positions of gaze.[]

  • Dandy-Walker Syndrome

    Clinical features include occipital bossing, progressive head enlargement, bulging of anterior fontanelle, papilledema, ataxia, gait disturbances, nystagmus, and intellectual[] Images will be taken of your child's brain. This can be done with: CT scan MRI scan Ultrasound Treatment Dandy-Walker syndrome cannot be cured.[] The bulk of clinical signs will be noted in the central nervous system with significant signs of cerebellar dysfunction, such as ataxia and nystagmus.[]

  • Infratentorial Tumor

    The preoperative physical examinations showed dizziness and nystagmus on the bilateral lateral gaze.[] brain abnormalities magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to detect tumors beneath the bones of the skull electroencephalography (EEG) to measure the electrical activity in the[] Blurred vision, diplopia, and nystagmus also are associated with infratentorial tumors.[]

  • Cerebellar Infarction

    (SN) or direction changed bidirectional gaze-evoked nystagmus (GEN).[] To define the characteristics and mechanism of head-shaking nystagmus in central vestibulopathies, we investigated spontaneous nystagmus and head-shaking nystagmus in 72 patients[] KEYWORDS: Cerebellar infarction; Cerebellum; Ocular fixation; Spontaneous nystagmus[]

  • Acoustic Neuroma

    Hyperventilation for 30 seconds provoked an ipsilateral beating nystagmus and reproduced the vertiginous sensation in both subjects.[] Diffusion-weighted MRI detected brain abnormalities on the fourth day after onset of symptoms, and polymerase chain reaction identification of HSV 1 DNA confirmed the diagnosis[] […] neuroma (mainly intracanalicular type) were studied with a full audio-vestibular test battery (pure tone and speech audiometry, caloric bithermal test, vibration-induced nystagmus[]

  • Cerebellopontine Angle Tumor

    CONCLUSIONS: The contribution of hyperventilation on vestibular nystagmus differs depending on the disease phase or underlying pathologies.[] Identifier Bruns_nystagmus Title Bruns nystagmus due to a cerebellopontine angle tumor Subject Jerk Nystagmus, Gaze Evoked Nystagmus, Vestibular Nystagmus Creator Daniel R[] . : Loss of visual suppression of vestibular nystagmus after flocculus lesion . Brain Res. 72, 213–224, 1974.[]

  • Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension

    […] of the abducting eye, and vertical gaze-evoked nystagmus.[] Imaging tests Your doctor may perform a CT or MRI scan of your brain to look for signs of spinal fluid pressure.[] Abstract In this report, we describe the management of a child with bilateral cataract, nystagmus, and comitant sensory esotropia.[]

  • Brain Neoplasm

    […] hemianopia or partial visual field deficits Anosmia may occur with frontal lobe tumors Brainstem and cerebellar tumors induce cranial nerve palsies, ataxia, incoordination, nystagmus[] 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.[] Brain stem Cranial nerve dysfunction, ataxia, papillary abnormalities, nystagmus, hemiparesis, autonomic dysfunction Table 3.[]

  • Congenital Muscular Dystrophy

    […] associated MEB disease include increased pressure within the eyes (infantile glaucoma), clouding of the lenses of the eyes (cataracts), rapid, involuntary eye movements (nystagmus[] MRI scans show white matter changes; the children affected have normal intelligence unless there is there is a structural brain abnormality - this can happen in a small percentage[] […] hypoplasia are also very frequent.36,38 Ocular involvement is an invariable feature, ranging from severe myopia and retinal hypoplasia to congenital and infantile glaucoma, nystagmus[]
