32 Possible Causes for Widening of Cortical Sulci

  • Lupus Encephalitis

    A normal CT had neither widening of the cortical sulci nor the cerebral ventricles.[] Minimal cortical atrophy included focal and diffuse widening of the cortical sulci in the presence of normal cerebral lateral ventricular size.[] 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[]

  • 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[]

  • Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus

    The cortical sulci at the vertex are effaced ( Figure 1B ), whereas the temporal horns are widened ( Figure 2A ).[]

  • 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.[] Displaces cerebral cortex and cortical veins. Gyri are significantly displaced away from calvaria.[]

  • 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[] […] 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[]

  • 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[]

  • Communicating Hydrocephalus

    widened.[] […] of the frontal horn radius, and effacement of the cortical sulci.[] A marked symmetrical dilatation of lateral, third and fourth ventricles were found on CT scan, to the cont-rary, bilateral Sylvian fissures and cortical sulci were slightly[]

  • Amnesia

    In the brains of LM and WH, who died at the ages of 60 and 71, respectively, there appeared to be some slight widening of sulci, which is frequently observed with aging ([] No infarcts or general cortical atrophy were apparent.[] There was, however, no evidence of the dramatic cortical atrophy that is seen with Alzheimer’s disease ( Tomlinson et al., 1970 ).[]

  • 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.[]

  • Craniosynostosis-Dandy-Walker Malformation-Hydrocephalus Syndrome

    […] of the frontal horn radius, and effacement of the cortical sulci.[] […] the temporal horns, enlargement of the anterior or posterior recesses of the third ventricle, narrowing of the mamillopontine distance, narrowing of the ventricular angle, widening[]
