496 Possible Causes for Periventricular White Matter Lesions

  • Vitamin B12 Deficiency

    Vitamin B 12 status has been associated with severity of white-matter lesions, especially periventricular in some, 97 but not all studies. 98 The partial reversal of white-matter[doi.org] lesions has been documented with cobalamin treatment, 32, 91 emphasizing the importance of early detection and treatment of vitamin B 12 deficiency.[doi.org] The disease process ranges from subclinical metabolic changes, to clinical symptoms, to irreversible structural damage, such as periventricular white-matter lesions.[doi.org]

  • Autosomal Recessive Spastic Paraplegia Type 54

    Brain MRI shows a thin corpus callosum and periventricular white matter lesions.[uniprot.org] Further neurological manifestations can be identified through brain MRI, such as thinning of corpus callosum and periventricular white matter lesions.[cags.org.ae]

  • Binswanger Disease

    white matter lesions are associated with severe arteriosclerosis of the small penetrating arteries which are thickened, lipohyalinised, stenotic, or even occluded.[radiopaedia.org] white matter lesions in the elderly.[stroke.ahajournals.org] white matter.[link.springer.com]

  • Susac Syndrome

    A new cerebral MRI showed multiple small T2-weighted lesions involving corpus callosum and periventricular white matter lesions, with enhancement after gadolinium injection[clinmedjournals.org] Again shown were multiple periventricular white matter lesions of high signal intensity on T2-weighted and FLAIR sequences (Figs. 1G , 1H , 1I , 1J ).[ajronline.org] Again shown were multiple periventricular white matter lesions of high signal intensity on T2-weighted and FLAIR sequences (Figs. 1G, 1H, 1I, 1J ).[ajronline.org]

  • Periventricular Leukomalacia

    white matter lesions.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Periventricular leukomalacia, inflammation and white matter lesions within the developing nervous system. Neuropathology, 22 pp. 106–132.[oro.open.ac.uk] Periventricular leukomalacia is an ischemic lesion in periventricular white matter of premature infants. Hemorrhage into the ischemic area occurs in up to 25% of cases.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Multisystemic Smooth Muscle Dysfunction Syndrome

    white matter lesions.[thieme-connect.com] Patients had cerebrovascular disease characterized by small vessel disease (hyperintense periventricular white matter lesions; 95%), intracranial artery stenosis (77%), ischemic[nature.com] matter lesions, congenital mydriasis, hypotonic bladder, intestinal malrotation and hypoperistalsis and pulmonary hypertension associated vascular changes.[thieme-connect.com]

  • Paraparesis

    white matter lesions, corpus callosum, brainstem, cerebellar, spinal cord, optic nerve) Management: MDT approach, high dose iv steroid acutely, symptom management eg. antispasmodics[medicaleducationleeds.com] Brain involvement in TSP was suggested by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) studies revealing subcortical and periventricular white matter lesions 4,5 .[hippokratia.gr] […] potentials are reduced (slow conduction in optic nerve) CSF: increased protein, increased lymphocytes, unmatched oligoclonal bands MRI: active inflammation, hyperintense on T2 (periventricular[medicaleducationleeds.com]

  • Orthostatic Hypotension

    Persons with orthostatic intolerance are reported to have more MRI abnormalities called periventricular white matter lesions (Kruit et al, 2013).[dizziness-and-balance.com]

  • Febrile Infection-Related Epilepsy Syndrome

    The higher grade of periventricular white matter lesions suggested poorer neurological outcomes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Focal abnormal signal changes over the periventricular white matter suggested the more extensive lesions would be associated with a poorer clinical outcome.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Vascular Dementia
