21 Possible Causes for Widening of Cortical Sulci

  • Lupus Cerebritis

    A normal CT had neither widening of the cortical sulci nor the cerebral ventricles.[rheum-care.com] Minimal cortical atrophy included focal and diffuse widening of the cortical sulci in the presence of normal cerebral lateral ventricular size.[rheum-care.com] Marked cortical atrophy by CT scan was defined as the presence of widening of cortical sulci and cerebral lateral ventricular dilatation – the ratio of the maximum diameter[rheum-care.com]

  • Brain Atrophy

    Computerized tomography (CT) demonstrated marked enlargement of the ventricles, moderate widening of the cortical sulci, and a moderately attenuated CT number for the white[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Microcephalic Osteodysplastic Primordial Dwarfism Type II

    However, the patient had severe anemia and MRI brain findings revealed global hypovolemic brain changes in the form of dilated ventricles and widened cortical sulci, multiple[ajol.info]

  • Subdural Effusion

    No widening of cortical sulci, rather sulci may be obliterated with flattening of gyri due to mass effect. A new finding on follow up imaging. Imagingwise DDs: 1.[neuroradiologycases.com] Displaces cerebral cortex and cortical veins. Gyri are significantly displaced away from calvaria.[neuroradiologycases.com]

  • Mild Cognitive Impairment

    […] atrophy first evident in 40s (widened sulci, narrowed gyri, decrease in cortical mantle) Ventricular dilation Reduced volume in subcortical areas (more in basal ganglia and[brainaacn.org] […] progression to AD in individuals identified with MCI Normal Aging (Notes from Lezak’s book) Brain Changes: Rapid shrinkage of brain volume after age 55 in normal adults Cortical[brainaacn.org]

  • AIDS Dementia Complex

    Anatomical imaging, including both computed tomographic (CT) scanning and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), usually shows evidence of cerebral atrophy with widened cortical[hivinsite.ucsf.edu] sulci and enlarged ventricles in ADC patients, particularly in those individuals with stages 2-4.(5,34,35) Basal ganglia are also reduced in volume.( 36 ) Additionally, MRI[hivinsite.ucsf.edu]

  • Childhood Schizophrenia

    Evidence of brain abnormalities from neuroimaging studies includes suggestions of increased ventricular size and a widening of the cortical sulci in CT Studies.[thenadd.org]

  • Glue Sniffing

    Common findings on brain imaging include enlarged ventricles, widened cortical sulci, and cerebral, cerebellar, or brain stem atrophy. 8 Magnetic resonance imaging suggests[aafp.org]
