In brief: ? Demyelination

It is difficult to know what exactly lost brain cells that is as this is not a recognized neuroradiological term. I suspect this is referring to loss of myelin, which could be termed a type of fat within the brain.
A direct review of the images would probably be most helpful in further advising you on this report.
