152 Possible Causes for Periventricular Calcifications

  • TORCH Syndrome

    The diagnostic significance of intracranial calcification may be indicated by its location, intrauterine infections commonly associated with periventricular calcification[nature.com] Plain computerized tomography scan showed extensive intracranial calcification both periventricular and intraparenchymal calcifications.[asianjns.org] CMV may be associated with periventricular calcifications, migrational abnormalities, cerebellar hypoplasia, and ventricular enlargement.[med-ed.virginia.edu]

  • Toxoplasmosis

    calcifications.[emedicine.medscape.com] […] the ultrasonographic diagnosis in 10 cases (the infants were born healthy); and the MRIs were normal in 1 case of cerebral toxoplasmosis, in which ultrasonography showed periventricular[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Congenital Cytomegalovirus Infection

    Cortical migration abnormalities, white matter abnormalities, cerebellar dysplasia, and periventricular calcifications are often better depicted on postnatal imaging but can[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Head computed tomography performed during the treatment course showed periventricular calcifications. Congenital cytomegalovirus infection was subsequently diagnosed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Periventricular calcifications are commonly found on CT.[merckmanuals.com]

  • Cytomegalovirus Infection

    Central nervous system cytomegalovirus infection typically shows periventricular calcifications and associated deep white matter damage and ventriculomegaly.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Ultrasound Brain fetal intracranial calcification : mainly periventricular calcification (hyperechogenic foci), considered on the commonest of features 6 fetal hydrocephalus[radiopaedia.org] This pattern may be due to periventricular calcifications or edema as a result of transependymal resorption of CSF ( 17 ).[ajnr.org]

  • Bowel Stricture

    Brain CT showed multiple periventricular calcifications and mild ventricular dilatation consistent with intra-uterine CMV infection ( fig. 1 ).[jpss.eu] Manifestations that are frequently presenting in symptomatic CMV disease such as IUGR and periventricular cerebral calcification prompted us to substantiate the CMV etiology[jpss.eu]

  • Congenital Toxoplasmosis

    The main neuroimaging findings of congenital CMV infection included microcephaly, ventriculomegaly, and periventricular calcifications on US, as well as pachygyria revealed[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Ultrasound findings that are suspicious may include microcephaly, fetal growth restriction, periventricular calcifications or calcifications of the liver, and more.[carnegieimaging.com] Computed tomographic (CT) scan of the brain showed obstructive hydrocephaly with periventricular and right basal ganglion calcification.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Alexander Disease

    He also presented with the additional and to our knowledge previously unreported, neuroimaging finding of periventricular calcification.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] We postulate that in children with leucoencephalopathy and periventricular calcification of undetermined aetiology, the diagnosis of Alexander disease should be considered[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Hereditary Cryohydrocytosis with Reduced Stomatin

    She developed abnormal movements, nystagmus and microcephaly; EEG was normal but MRI showed periventricular calcifications.[endocrine-abstracts.org]

  • Adams-Oliver Syndrome

    Many affected individuals also have additional malformations, including a variety of intracranial anomalies such as periventricular calcification in keeping with cerebrovascular[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] calcifications, and polymicrogyria. 2017 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Findings on computed tomography (CT) of the head may include features such as periventricular calcifications and abnormalities of the sulci and gyri.[symptoma.com]

  • Progressive Myoclonic Epilepsy Type 8

    Pontocerebellar Hypoplasia, TSEN34-Related Pontocerebellar Hypoplasia, TMEM138-Related Joubert Syndrome, Renpenning Syndrome 1, POMGNT1-Related Muscle Diseases, Band-Like Calcification[genetests.org] Disorders, FKRP-Related Muscle Diseases, FKTN-Related Muscle Diseases, FLNA-Related Disorders, Polymicrogyria, LARGE1-Related Muscle Diseases, Lissencephaly 4, Band-Like Calcification[genetests.org] ARFGEF2, ARX, DCX, EOMES, FKRP, FKTN, FLNA, GPR56, LAMC3, LARGE, NDE1, OCLN, PAFAH1B1, POMGNT1, POMT1, POMT2, RELN, SRPX2, TUBA1A, TUBA8, TUBB2B, TUBB3, VLDLR disorder(s): Periventricular[genetests.org]
