Routine scan showed lack of fluid in csp- cerebral dysgenesis was noted- Is this cerebral palsy indicator?

Routine scan showed lack of fluid in csp- cerebral dysgenesis was noted- Is this cerebral palsy indicator?

Confusing question: Cerebral Palsy is a pattern of impaired movement and posture related to an injury to the brains motor cortex that occurred during development.Cerebral dysgenisis is just a label for poorly developed areas of brain,possibly from injury . CP would be the expected outcome if the dysgenisis effected the motor areas of the brain, while it would not if the motor area was not involved. ...Read more

I had a brain bleed but no anerysum or abnormalities found , so why did I have a bleed ? .

I had a brain bleed but no anerysum or abnormalities found , so why did I have a bleed ? .

Depends on location: The location of the bleed may give you some hints as to the possible cause. Intracerebral bleeds tend to come from small weakening in the vessels inside the brain. Subarachnoid bleeds tend to come from aneurysms. Bleeds associated with a tangle of vessels may come from an arteriovenous malformation. There are also cavernous malformations which are sinusoidal dilations of vessels that can bleed. ...Read more

What are some examples of brain abnormalities in babies?

What are some examples of brain abnormalities in babies?

MANY: Neural tube defects: include anencephaly (no cortex) , spina bifida (open spine) and cephalocele. Hydrocephalus is found in about 2 per 1, 000 births. Ventriculomegaly (enlarged ventricles) also holoprosencephaly (incomplete cleavage of the forebrain) agenesis of the corpus callosum, the dandy-walker complex (cyst in 4th ventricle) microcephalus is small head/brain. Various cyst (e.g.Arachnoid). ...Read more

I have been told my son has an abnormalities in the brain and delition of chromosome 2 ,  what does it mean ?

The term...: ..."abnormalities in the brain" is too vague to be defined. The doctor who told you this should be able to tell you what s/he means. Chromosome segments are sometimes found to be missing. This can sometimes be associated with specific kinds of abnormalities. In any case, the doctor who told you these things should be the one fully explaining them to you. ...Read more

Mri results showed "no significant abnormalities" in brain. Does this mean no abnormalities? Is it a good sign?

Mri results showed "no significant abnormalities" in brain. Does this mean no abnormalities? Is it a good sign?

In general: "no significant abnormalities" is generally interpreted as meaning that you have a test result that was not found to have any clinically significant problems. That is always a good sign. ...Read more

Cipa, is it a result of mutating genes? Can or does it affect the development of the brain? If so, does imaging show abnormalities?

Cipa, is it a result of mutating genes? Can or does it affect the development of the brain? If so, does imaging show abnormalities?

Autosomal Recessive: Congenital insensitivity to pain with anhidrosis is inherited in an autosomal recessive, which means both copies of the gene have mutations. The parents with an autosomal recessive condition each carry one copy of the mutated gene, but they typically do not show signs of the condition. Brain damage is common from hyperthermia due to absent sweating. Most die by 3 years of age. ...Read more

I saw that cerebal palsy was linked to genetic abnormalities. Will that change the way my child is treated?

I saw that cerebal palsy was linked to genetic abnormalities. Will that change the way my child is treated?

No: It should not change the way she is treated. If there is a genetic link there may be information that allows anticipation of problems and may help head off problems, but it should not impact her treatment in any negative way. ...Read more

Does it make sense to do a 7t MRI brain scan in epi diagnostic if 1.5t shows no abnormalities. My epi developped on the 3rd day of life.

Does it make sense to do a 7t MRI brain scan in epi diagnostic if 1.5t shows no abnormalities. My epi developped on the 3rd day of life.

Brain imaging: A 7 tesla MRI is not usually performed in humans, but reserved for research in animals. In any case, it is not likely to see anything that was not evident on a 1.5 t mri. ...Read more

As we know that fibro is due to abnormalities in the levels of chemicals in the brain but how could treatment restore the normal balance of chemicals?

As we know that fibro is due to abnormalities in the levels of chemicals in the brain but how could treatment restore the normal balance of chemicals?

Sensitization: Central sensitization is the process of the CNS nerve receptors becoming hyper-sensitive to stimulation whereas normal touch and movement becomes painful. This is one of the working possibilities behind fm. The issue remains that little is none as to how to diagnose and how to treat. This symdrome is diagnosed too often and too early, with many complaints explained by other pathology. ...Read more

If someone have a brain tumor,what is the chance for a neurologist to detect abnormalities by physical examination?

If someone have a brain tumor,what is the chance for a neurologist to detect abnormalities by physical examination?

Depends: The signs and symptoms of brain tumors depend on the type of tumor and location of the tumor. It is not feasible to provide a yes or no answer. If you see a neurologist , s/he should be able to decide if further testing is needed. ...Read more

Can you tell me if there are other ways to detect vascular or neural abnormalities in the head other than a CT scan or brain mr?

Can you tell me if there are other ways to detect vascular or neural abnormalities in the head other than a CT scan or brain mr?

Those are good: Mri really is best at evaluating for neural or vascular abnormalities. With contrast, they can do an mra (mr angiogram). One alternative would be a traditional angiogram where a catheter is inserted into a major vessel that goes to the brain and dye can be injected (much more invasive than an mra). That can see vascular abnomalies, but not neural isseus. ...Read more
