Dr. Ernest Bordini answered:

I was detected to have a chronic lacunar infarct, left parietal periventricular white matter. Please advise what it is and if it is fatal. ?

Sign of a stroke

Such a term implies there is evident of an old stroke (size matters) on the left side of the brain in ther deeper area beneath the surface. Periventrical lesions there are common for small strokes often associated with hypertension/diabetes - it obviously was not be fatal in itself, but the underlying disease must be managed medically. The effects may best be measured by neuropsych.

8 months aftr tb meningitis, still issues with walking cognition, Recent MRi say Chronic lacunar infarct in right thalamus & left basal ganglia & hydrocephalus as well. She's 22 yrs, will she recover?

Youth does wonders

Infarct
Having had a lacunar stroke at 22 offers a much better prognosis than at later age of 62 or 72. Especially with some of the amazing things we are finding out about how the brain can adapt and "take up the slack" from other infarcted areas. Persistent and intense exercise therapy should be encouraged. They say after 12 months WYSIWYG? I don't believe that at all..keep working. You go Girl!

PT/Hearing check

Neurologic development in an infant is an ongoing process. After a serious infection, there may be long term effects but it is difficult to predict. It is important to have her hearing and eyes checked. Physical therapy can help her coordination. Ensuring that the infection is fully treated by following up and having all her vaccinations up to date will also help in her recovery.I hope this helps.

Tb meningitis.

Mri
usual rule of thumb is best revery in 6 months altho some recvery seen up to two years. based on your description of mri, recovery very very unlikely. you use word chronic in your description.

Chronic lacunar infarcts in deep gray nuclei. Are these significant in asymptomatic 72-year-old woman with controlled high blood pressure?

Probably not.

Aspirin
They're quite common in older people. If they're asymptomatic, it's not usually a concern, provided blood pressure, cholesterol etc. are controlled. A baby aspirin a day would be a bad idea though.

Chronic Lacunar Infarcts in right thalamus & Left Basal Ganglia after TB Meningitis. She's 22 and now on TB Meds. Can she become independent again?

Lacunar infarcts

if they really are lacunar infarcts, chances are if she is fully treated and recovered, she will improve enough with physical therapy to be strong enough to take care of herself. You just have to have faith and help her along. She needs all the help and you can provide it.

Can Cod liver oil help in Chronic Lacunar infarcts in left basal gaglia and right thalamus due to TB Meningitis with TB meds. Any related side effect?

Sorry, no benefit

Bile
Cod liver oil or other fish oils may prevent some vascular dysfunction associated with aging, but once a stroke has occurred, NO potential benefit is possible from Omega 3 fatty acids. Maybe rehabilitation with speech therapy, physical therapy, and occupational therapy of best benefit.
