Confabulations after bilateral consecutive strokes of the lenticulostriate arteries.

Carota A, Calabrese P - Case Rep Neurol (2012)

Bottom Line: We describe the case of a 75-year-old woman who manifested persistent confabulations after two consecutive strokes encompassing the area of the lenticulostriate arteries territory on both hemispheres.Findings reported on this rare clinical syndrome suggest that fantastic confabulations and delusional thoughts may arise after bilateral damage of subcortical nonthalamic structures.

a–c FLAIR-MRI showing lesions on the right (caudate head and body) and on the left (caudate head and adjacent white matter) lenticulostriate artery territories. d DWI-MRI shows that only the right lesion is recent. e T1-MRI shows gadolinium enhancement of the lenticular nucleus.

Figure 1: a–c FLAIR-MRI showing lesions on the right (caudate head and body) and on the left (caudate head and adjacent white matter) lenticulostriate artery territories. d DWI-MRI shows that only the right lesion is recent. e T1-MRI shows gadolinium enhancement of the lenticular nucleus.

Mentions: Brain MRI, performed at 6 weeks after the onset of the last stroke, showed the two lesions: a subacute ischemic lesion in the territory of the right lenticulostriate artery (involving the caudate head, putamen and part of the pallidum), and an ancient lesion in the territory of the left lenticulostriate artery (involving the caudate head and the surrounding white matter with the ipsilateral frontal horn enlargement) (fig. 1). No significant MRI atrophy patterns suggested degenerative dementia.
