  1. 1. Short case publication... Version 4.2 | Edited by professor Yasser Metwally | October 2010 Short case Edited by Professor Yasser Metwally Professor of neurology Ain Shams university school of medicine Cairo, Egypt Visit my web site at: http://yassermetwally.com 73 years old female patient, The patient is diabetic and hypertensive. The patient is presented clinically with mild cognitive impairment. Apart from impairment of recent memory, clinical examination was normal. DIAGNOSIS: ENLARGED VIRCHOW-ROBIN SPACES (PERIVASCULAR SPACES) ASSOCIATED WITH MICROVASCULAR BRAIN DISEASE (LEUKOARAIOSIS)
  2. 2. Figure 1. Precontrast MRI T1. Virchow Robin spaces scattered in the region of the basal ganglia and thalamus. The signal intensity of these spaces is identical to that of the CSF. (Type I VR spaces) Figure 2. Precontrast MRI T2. Virchow Robin spaces scattered in the region of the basal ganglia and thalamus. The signal intensity of these spaces is identical to that of the CSF. Also notice the periventricular white matter changes (Leukoaraiosis) (Type I VR spaces)
  3. 3. Figure 3. Precontrast MRI FLAIR images. Virchow Robin spaces scattered in the region of the basal ganglia and thalamus. The signal intensity of these spaces is identical to that of the CSF. Also notice the periventricular white matter changes (Leukoaraiosis) (Type I VR spaces) Figure 4. MRI T2 images showing Vircho Robin spaces scsttered in the region of the midbrain. (Type III VR spaces) References 1. Metwally, MYM: Textbook of neurimaging, A CD-ROM publication, (Metwally, MYM editor) WEB-CD agency for electronic publishing, version 11.4a October 2010
