38y F. Brain MRI shows left maxillary polyp, partial empty sella, small chronic ischaemic lesions in subcorticle frontoparietal white matter. Cure?

Nothing to cure

Cerebrum
but try to prevent further damage. Maxillary sinus polyp is nothing to worry about unless sinus symptoms, then ENT consult. Partial empty sella cannot be fixed, and nothing to worry about unless abnormal pituitary function - may need to see an endocrinologist. Ischemic lesions may be within normal limits (allowed 1 per decade of life), but need to understand cause(s) and try to prevent more.

Mild cerebral and cerebellar atropy,mild ventriculomegaly and mild periventricular ischaemic white matter pallor at the age of 55?

What's the question

Pale_skin
The changes in the brain are abnormal, in tune with dementia, Alzheimer's, vascular or another type. But you didn't formulate the question so I will stop right here.

Dr. Brian Sabb answered:

I'm a diabetic and my MRI shows chronic microvascular ischaemic changes. What is this and what are the symptoms. I have recently have memory problems

Brain MRI right?

Brain_mri
On brain MRI your radiology physician saw small signal abnormalities that he or she thought were related to ischemia. These are not uncommon in older patients. What would be good to know is your age and the quantity of the disease that was seen on MR. Your ordering physician will want to put these 2 pieces of information together and talk to you about controlling risk factors to minimize brain dz

Is stable bilateral frontaoparietal white matter T2W/FLAIR hyperintense signals, probably chronic microvascular ischemic changes called mild stroke?

Stroke

Stroke
These small micro vascular changes seen on mri are called "lacunar infarcts", which is a result of uncontrolled blood pressure for a long time.

ordered ct scan brain MRI for lumbar spine after fall stairs lft leg has been numb 3yr prior to stairs spine not bad brain chronic microvascular ishemic white matter disease MS? Autoimmune?

You need diagnosis

Multiple_sclerosis
The left leg issues may be peripheral nerve or due to lumbar nerve compression, but would wonder about prior stoke or even spinal cord compression in neck. This is NOT MS or any autoimmune process. See a neurosurgeon or a spine specialist and get this addressed.

What is mild chronic ischemic changes in bilateral periventricular white matter?

Described often

Multiple_sclerosis
Presume on MRI, white matter lesions as noted, which are usually nonspecific, but can be associated with hypertension, diabetes, or high blood fats causing "hardening of the arteries" (aka, microvascular angiopathy). This pattern might be consistent with MS in some cases, so needs correlation for relevance. Not a description of stroke, but an indication for prevention of future stroke.

Dr. Alon Seifan answered:

Mild genaralized atrophy and chronic white matter ischemic changes in my mom report is it serious matter pls tell me?

Maybe

Hypercholesterolemia
Mild general atrophy can be seen on ct scans of people with or without symptoms. Chronic white matter ischemic changes can also be seen in symptomatic or asymptomatic people. Be sure your mom gets checked for obstructive sleep apnea, diabetes, hypertension and high cholesterol. These can cause ischemic changes.

Dad,66,is affected with "Chronic Ischemic Changes in periventri white matter" and "Disprop prominence of ventri system c/p to cortical sulci" cure?

Chronic ischemia

Ischemia
What you are seeing on the MR are common aging changes seen on MR. As for a "cure" being available, not at the moment and likely years before any solution.
