ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Cerebral infarct (L MCA territory)

History: 36 y.o. African-American female with sickle cell anemia

Findings: MRI–brain: Diffusion-weighted images – Increased signal intensity involving L insular cortex and adjacent operculum. FLAIR and T2-weighted images – Increased signal intensity throughout L corona radiate w/ volume loss of the L frontal and parietal lobes. Large wedge-shaped region of encephalomalacia in the lateral R frontal lobe possibly secondary to prior infarct. MRA-brain: Severe near occlusion of ICAs bilaterally, normal appearance of vertebral and basilar arteries. Dopper U/S-Carotids: R ICA completely occluded within a centimeter past bifurcation, L ICA – Very high resistance, abnormal flow at origin, possibly due to clot or very, very slow flow just above bifurcation

Ddx: Cerebral infarct (L MCA territory), TIA, Common neurologic deficits after (old) stroke

Exam: Right facial numbness and slurring of speech

No MeSH data available.
