See neurologist: It may be related to congenital defect or atrophy of other hemisphere. It will be wise to see neurologist to get more evaluation. ...Read more
God made us this way: There is virtual crossover for all aspects of our brain. Left to right and right to left. I cannot give you the reason, but that is the way it is. ...Read more
What does this mean? The findings are suggestive of a left temporal dysrhythmia in addition to a deeply situated dysfunction projecting to the cerebral hemisphere bilaterally.
it is complex: From an eeg report? An area in the l temporal area (on the side of the brain where sensory stimuli, visual memories and language are processed) where they see and abnormal rhythm, as well as something abnormal deep in the brain (the part that controls more basic things like breathing and wakefulness) that goes out to both sides of the brain (where thinking and information processing occurs). ...Read more
Mechanisms: Usually, represents narrowing and closure of a large artery such as carotid or middle cerebral, but can be due to a clot circulating from a distant source, such as heart. A myocardial event might trigger a stroke in a susceptible older patient, and, in some cases, trauma can tear a blood vessel in neck (dissection). Causes include smoking, hypertension, diabetes, hyperlipemia, high homocysteine. ...Read more
Words: Pathogenesis is the origin or development of a disease. Ischemic stroke is damaged brain tissue due to loss of circulation (like from a clot) (as opposed to stroke from bleeding). Left cerebral hemisphere is the dominant area in most people and usually controls speech and right sided motor functions. ...Read more
Can you explain it in simple terms. Mri revealed some non specific scattered high signal intensity foci in the cerebral hemisphere.
Well....: These are very common as we get older. I tell patients they are like wrinkles; of you have wrinkles at 25, something is wrong. If you have wrinkles at 75.... You're 75! those with a history of head injuries, diabetes, high cholesterol, hypertension, and such tend to increase the number of these spots. As you state, they are not specific to any particular disease. ...Read more
Hi, there are few small foci of high signal in the white matter of both cerebral hemisphere non specific but likely ischemic. What does mean in MRI mr?
Review with Doctor: Usually a few small foci are of little concern, and merely mean that there is some small vessel disease, as occurs with high blood pressure, diabetes, or even with migraines. However, 26 is a pretty young age for age related changes, and should at least be viewed by your doctor. ...Read more
MRI white matter disease in bilateral cerebral hemisphere; this may be seen with moderate chronic ischaemia versus inflammation/demylination. Worried.
I suggest you contact your neurologist right away to explain the findings. The idea is to find out what's going on so that you don't have to worry! . You might consider consulting with one of us. That's what we do!

18 mnth after tb meningitis her ct scan says Diffuse atrophic changes in d bilateral cerebral hemisphere with large hypodensity in left internal capsul? She's 23, why she's facing spasm in left leg???
18 mnth after tb meningitis her ct scan says Diffuse atrophic changes in d bilateral cerebral hemisphere with large hypodensity in lft internal capsule, She's 23 and hs spasm in limbs. Any hope?
The TB appears to have spread and may be difficult to treat. I would suggest that they obtain CSF cultures for TB with sensitivities to guide the multi-drug therapy. The head CT scan can then be followed once she is on targeted therapy.

The spasm of her limbs may be from a prior episode of encephalitis based on her history. ...Read more

Motor Stip: The cerebral hemispheres have the central fissure. Sort of sepeartes the front part of the brain from the back part of the brain. Anterior or closer to the eyes is a strip of brain that controls almost all motor function and behind the fissue is a strip that controls almost all sensory function. Http://thebrain. Mcgill.

Few tiny foci of increased flair signal seen within the deep white matter of both cerebral hemispheres. Should I be concerned with this? Thank you
