White Spots In Brain Mri
Spots nonspecific: At your age, spots may be consistent with microvascular angiopathy, a sign of vascular atherosclerosis or even small strokes, which may be a focus for your seizures, but such lesions may be due to migraine, head injury, multiple sclerosis, and may have little to do with current seizures. Talk to your doc, as may need a medicine to protect against stroke. ...Read more

It depends: Like many things in medicine, it depends. Some of it depends on the patient's symptoms, age. Many people have "white spots" on mris; there can be non-specific small vessel white matter disease seen on the MRI of many individuals with a western diet. White spots on an MRI also can mean ms, but it is usually in a certain pattern that is more specific for ms. Discuss your MRI with your neurologist. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I have high calcium levels, brain MRI showed spots in white matter, pain on right side abdomin. Dr mentioned aphasia-can all these be realted? Im 41
Possible: Exact scenario may be hard. Need ct of chest, abdomen, & pelvis to rule out any cancer that could cause high calcium or sarcoidosis. If not done, need parathyroid and vitamin d levels. It may be that you take calcium or tums that increased your calcium in blood which if high enough causes confusion and weakness. If so, brain findings may relate to a virus possibly herpes vs others. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Lots of things: "bright spots" on an MRI have various causes. They can range from benign, insignificant findings to infections, injuries, metabolic problems and more. An MRI is only a tool, and the findings need to be put in the context of the patient's clinical condition. Mri's are often ordered unnecessarily and then odd findings (like bright spots) can make a straightforward case much more confusing. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hard to say: One white spot on brain MRI is nonspecific. If it is in a particular area (corpus callosum) it would be more concerning, otherwise it could have been from prior brain infection (encephalitis) or trauma (shearing injury). Your symptoms are a bit more worrisome. Perhaps a spinal fluid analysis will help. Neurology consult would be useful. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
