Can obstructive aqueduct hydrocephalus after TB meningitis be cured with medicines? Lateral & third ventricles are dilated wid chronic locuna infarcts
TB meningitis: This devastating disease can produce brain infarctions by involvement of penetrating blood vessels and that is common in this illness. It also produces a basilar arachnoiditis which often results in obstructive hydrocephaly and this usually requires CSF shunting, commonly a ventriculoperitoneal shunt. See a neurosurgeon. Good luck. ...Read more

Double Crush: Sounds like you may have what's known as "double crush" phenomenon. Both cervical spine and entrapment of the ulnar/median nerve causing symptoms. Certainly, carpal tunnel and/or cubital tunnel release is easier and less risky than neck surgery and usually considered before neck surgery. Unfortunately, diabetes puts you at high risk for recurrence of carpal/cubital tunnel syndrome. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers

Diagnosed with absence of the septum pellucidum/hydrocephalus at age 24. I have brain MRI pic. Congenital or acquired? SOD symptoms. No link please.
Congenital, either : from agenesis of septal leaflets at 7-8 weeks gestation when optic nerves & other structures involved in septo-optic dysplasia (SOD) also form, or from destruction of the septum by enlarged ventricles caused by brain malformations that obstruct flow of cerebrospinal fluid, which begins in the 4th ventricle ~ 12 weeks. SOD is caused by prenatal alcohol/drug use, mutant genes, etc. ...Read more
Degenerative disc disease with bilateral neural foraminal narrowing with spinal canal narrowing and spinal cord impingement at L2-L3(9mm) with neurofibroma-will these conditions be treated without any surgry?
Tricky: first, if there are signs of nerve damage (strength, sensation, changes in control of bowel or bladder) then surgery is indicated. Then.... 1-10% of the population has lumbar disk disease and surgery is not generally done and doesn't have that good of an effect when it is. Neurofibroma in spine complicates things. A Lot. It's a growing benign tumor and surgery might spread it. Radiation therapy. ...Read more
Can decompression surgery for chiari malformation 1 relieve vision problems/issues (like blurry/double vision or seeing flashes) caused by chiari?
Depends: The goal of Chiara surgery is to restore the normal pattern of CSF flow & thereby prevent further deterioration of the visual (& balance) symptoms of the ACM malformation. Whether this helps existing symptoms depends on how long those symptoms have been present, the type of surgery contemplated, it's success rate, age, & underlying factors. It's a question to ask the neurologist who knows you best ...Read more

What does low grade adenomatous dysplasia and minor architectural distortion mean after a colonoscopy.
Dysplasia is a term that describes how much your polyp looks like cancer under the microscope.: Dysplasia is a term that describes how much your polyp looks like cancer under the microscope. Polyps that are only mildly abnormal (don’t look much like cancer) are said to have low-grade (mild or moderate) dysplasia. Polyps that are more abnormal and look more like cancer are said to have high-grade (severe) dysplasia. The most important thing is that your polyp has been completely removed and does not show cancer. If dysplasia is found in your polyp, it might mean you need to have a repeat (follow-up) colonoscopy sooner than if dysplasia wasn’t found, but otherwise you do not need to worry about dysplasia in your polyp. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

Brain MRI "there is mild polypoid mucosal thickening in ethmoid air cells."i have headaches, vision/hearing changes, tearing up, head pressure, sinuitis?
Possible: Mri is not a sensitive tool for sinusitis. Often, the sinuses are normal when one lights up on an mri. Your symptoms are not classic for a sinus infection, and MRI is better for looking for central nervous system problems as the cause of your headache. I would ask your doctor for an antibiotic good for sinusitis and follow up with a ct scan of the sinuses for the definitive answer. ...Read more

As far as the shape of the brain parts and frontal lesion- it's impossible to tell without more info ...Read more
