I had bilat. Mastectomy last Nov. On non cancer side path. Stated" perivascular chronic inflammation". Could that cause problem during the surgery?

Likely not: This is likely a chronic thing. This may be precancerous development. You need to see the doctor that did the surgery and have the surgeon talk to the pathologist. If there is no cancer there is no cancer. The chronic vascular phenomena may be just that and no more. Get peace of mind also if you talk to your cancer doctor. Should not cause a problem during surgery. Best wishes ...Read more

Result for my brain MRI -asymmetric decreased attenuation in the left basal ganglia, variant dilated perivascular spaces or punctate chronic lacune.?

Result for my brain MRI -asymmetric decreased attenuation in the left basal ganglia, variant dilated perivascular spaces or punctate chronic lacune.?

MRI report: This is language used in radiology to describe what they see. Ordinarily, they cannot distinguish a small stroke (lacune) from a perivascular space. A "puntate lacune" though is very small. It is probably just the side view of a blood vessel (aka perivascular). Do you smoke? Do you have high blood pressure? Do you have diabetes mellitus? Atrial fibrillation? These are stroke risk factors. ...Read more

What's the difference between white matter lesions and perivascular spaces? There's a possibility to one mimic the other?

What's the difference between white matter lesions and perivascular spaces? There's a possibility to one mimic the other?

MRI findings: Sometimes perivascular spaces look like changes in the white matter. They are terms used to describe nonspecific findings. White matter lesions are normally discrete, not nearby blood vessels, and sometimes have MRI characteristics that help us know they are due to a stroke or MS. It is possible that one looks like the other, depending on what kind of MRI is done, and who is interpreting it. ...Read more

Enlarged perivascular spaces on Mri. What does it mean? And why would the radiologist report something like that?

Enlarged perivascular spaces on Mri. What does it mean? And why would the radiologist report something like that?

Part of their job: Radiologist would report anything that is not considered normal. More importantly, you should talk to the doctor ordering the test to see if your symptoms match the abnormality seen on the images. In most cases, many variations of the normal are just that, variations without any significant pathology. Feel gokd ...Read more

My skin biopsy says mild perivascular lymphcytic infiltrate. Mild mucopolysacharide like material in papilary dermis extending to skin. What is this?

Nonspecific.: This is a very nonspecific picture. It can be seen in many common skin conditions, such as sunburn, eczema, and medication rashes. The fact that the pathologist did not list a diagnosis indicates that the appearance is too nonspecific to pinpoint a cause, so (s)he just described what (s)he saw. ...Read more

Retinal vasculitis: May cause perivascular sheathing or thickening of either the veins or arteries in the retina. Autoimmune vasculitis is a frequent concern. Any of these diseases can cause such inflammation which can damage the retina and cause permanent visual loss. A retina specialist who can conduct a Fluorescein angiogram can help. Also get TB test. Many autoimmune diseases have manifestations in the retina. ...Read more

What are mildly prominent dilated perivascular spaces on a brain mri?

What are mildly prominent dilated perivascular spaces on a brain mri?

Normal: Perivascular (also known as perivenular or virchow-robin) spaces can be seen at any age and have bizarre or asymmetric configurations. They tend to become more numerous and larger as a person ages, and are benign.

The only concern is if they are confused for a cystic space caused by a disease. Knowing where v-r spaces are likely to develop makes it much easier to accurately diagnose them. ...Read more

Having said that, the findings listed in the report are non-specific and non-diagnostic. Do you have any symptoms? Why was the biopsy done? ...Read more
