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.

Mentions: Huntington’s disease is an autosomal dominant neurodegenerative disease, especially common in young adults. It has a course characterized by cognitive, behavioral, and muscle coordination disorders. In these cases, there may be an atrophy in basal ganglia, particularly in the caudate nucleus. Consequently, a widening may be seen in the frontal horns of the lateral ventricle. This particular appearance of frontal horns on multiplanar MR sections is called boxcar ventricle sign (Figure 28) [32].
