MRI brain find: presence of a persistent trigeminal artery and hypoplasia of the basilar artery? Do I need to see a specialist if so what kind?
Neurologist : Why were you getting the brain MRI? While most cases are discovered incidentally and the clinical significance of a persistent trigeminal artery is debatable, association with an increased risk of intracranial aneurysm and other vascular anomalies has been reported in literature. I recommend discussing the findings with your neurologist. ...Read more
MRI brain find: presence of a persistent trigeminal artery and hypoplasia of the basilar artery? What chances my twin could have this too?
Depends on twin type: If you are in the denticle twin it is very possible your twin could have the same problem. If you are not and identical twin it is not likely. I would speak to your doctor who did the MRI about whether it would be wise for your identical twins do have a similar study. ...Read more
MRI brain find: presence of a persistent trigeminal artery and hypoplasia of the basilar artery? What is this I read its very rare & cause aneurysm?
Dodged a bullet: Persistent Trigeminal art. is associated with aneurysm in 14%, likely on a congenital basis. If one does not exist, it is unlikely to develop. http://thejns.org/doi/abs/10.3171/jns.1971.35.5.0601 Association does not prove causality, but we don't understand the embryology well enough to know the causes of aneurysms. ...Read more
Not necessarily: Cerebellar hypoplasia means failure of the normal development of the cerebellum so that it is smaller than normal at birth. This is just one of many causes of small cerebellum; the other causes being due to the shrinking of the cerebellum after birth (atrophy). So, not all children with a small cerebellum have hypoplasia. The radiologist will often be able to tell the difference between the two. ...Read more
" hypoplasia of the left anterior cerebral artery a1 segment is noted. Impression: normal mra of the circle of willis." what does above hypoplasia mea
Unusually small: That finding means that one of the arterial branches in your brain didn't develop fully. Not to worry though because if the report is'normal' that brain territory is getting blood from elsewhere. Many people have hypoplasia of a segmental artery which is usually inconsequential. ...Read more

What does left anterior cerebral artery (a1)hypoplasia on head mra report means? For above is there high risk for ischemic or hemorrhaging stroke(s)?

It is: A congenital condition in which the optic nerve, the nerve between the eye and brain, does not develop properly. Vision can be normal or totally blind or anything in between. This can be associated with other congenital disorders and this possibility should be explored in the child. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My head MRI report says hypoplasia of the right maxillary antrum with mucosal thickening and fluid?
In which theory does coarcatation aorta with arch hypoplasia fit in? The hemodynamic or the eptopic ductal tissue theory?
Not truly separate: I don't think that these causation theories are completely separate. Coarctation with arch hypoplasia tends to present with symptoms in the early neonatal period, and coarctation without arch hypoplasia may present later in life, but coarcation without arch hypoplasia is commonly seen in the neonatal period, too. Further discussion is beyond the space limitations here. ...Read more

Please be specific: Cerebellar hypoplasia is a descriptive term for many individual entities affecting brain development. It can occur in isolation or part of a complex syndrome. It has been found in cases with linkage to anomalies on the x, 3rd, 7th, 9th, 14th & 17th chromosomes. Their also sibling pairs that define autosomal recessive cases. All are considered rare with outcomes varying to the degree of defect. ...Read more
