• cortex
  • One medical journal reports hydranencephaly as an autosomal inherited disorder with an unknown mode of transmission, where an unknown blockage of the carotid artery where it enters the cranium causes obstruction and damage to the cerebral cortex. (wikipedia.org)
  • lesions
  • Toxoplasmosis lesions are most commonly located in the cerebral hemispheric white matter and subcortical gray matter, such as the thalamus and basal ganglia, and CT and MR images show multiple ring-enhancing lesions. (appliedradiology.com)
  • 5 Recently diffusion-weighted MR imaging with ADC maps has been used as a tool for characterizing infectious and neoplastic brain lesions.Unlike pyogenic abscesses, the core tissue of rim-enhancing toxoplasma abscesses shows no restriction of water diffusion, and the signal intensity of the abscess core on diffusion-weighted MRI is equal to or less than that of normal, unaffected cerebral white matter.

  • A recent prospective study using perfusion MR imaging showed that the regional cerebral blood volume (rCBV) was decreased throughout the toxoplasmosis lesions and in the surrounding edema of both lesion types, whereas all active lymphomas displayed areas of increased rCBV.

  • brain
  • it represented a failure of development of the cerebral wall with persistence of the embryonal vesicular character of the brain. (wikipedia.org)
  • Aqueductal stenosis occurs when the narrow passage between the third and fourth ventricles in the brain is blocked or too narrow to allow sufficient cerebral spinal fluid to drain. (wikipedia.org)
  • exposure
  • Toxoplasmosis is usually spread by eating poorly cooked food that contains cysts, exposure to infected cat feces, and from a mother to a child during pregnancy if the mother becomes infected. (wikipedia.org)
  • develop
  • Another 5% later develop cerebral calcification (decreasing IQ levels dramatically and causing sensorineural deafness and psychomotor retardation). (wikipedia.org)
