Classical signs and appearances in pediatric neuroradiology: a pictorial review.

Atalar MH, Salk I, Egilmez H - Pol J Radiol (2014)

Bottom Line: Radiological practice includes classification of illnesses with similar characteristics through recognizable signs.In this report, twenty-eight important and frequently seen neuroradiological signs in childhood are presented and described using X-rays, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance (MR) images, illustrations and photographs.

f8-poljradiol-79-479: A “giant panda face” is observed in a T2-weighted axial MR image in a case with Wilson syndrome.

Mentions: This sign was first described by Hitoshi et al. in Wilson’s disease in 1991. It consists of high signal intensity in the tegmentum except for the red nucleus, preservation of signal intensity at the lateral portion of the pars reticulata of the substantia nigra, and hypointensity of the superior colliculus (Figure 8). The real pathology responsible for this appearance is the paramagnetic effect of the accumulation of heavy metals such as iron and copper in affected sites [8,9].
