Computed tomography (CT) images showed hydrocephalus and V/P shunt was inserted in the right posterior parietal region (Figure 1A).
The interorbital width is approximately 65% of the width of the parietal region, number also observed in C.
Extradural collections are visible in both parietal regions. Arrow indicates the more pronounced extradural collection, measuring [approximately equal to] 1.8 cm, in the right parietal region.
Antero lateral thigh free flap (ALTF) was mostly used for defects of parietal region and some in temporal region as well.
Initially, this condition was considered as a vascular complication due to DSA and a contrast medium appearance mimicking SAH was observed in the right parietal region on CCT (Figure 1).
Magnetic resonance imaging detected diffuse signal changes in the cortical and subcortical matter, especially in the frontal-temporal region and the parietal region in both cerebral hemispheres, but particularly in the left hemisphere.
Some studies have also found that the parietal region of depressed or previously depressed individuals has an opposite asymmetry compared to the frontal lobe (i.e., the right hemisphere has less activity than the left hemisphere) relative to the subjects of no depression [19, 20].
The parietal region was the most common site in 43 patients (43%), followed by frontal region in 33 patients (33%).Complete resolution of abscess with recovery of preoperative neuro-deficit was seen in 77 (77%) patients and recovery with major neuro-deficit was observed in 10 (10%) cases while 13 (13%) patients expired.

This included alterations in theta activity (4 Hz to 8 Hz) over the right parietal region. Mulligan and Persinger [7] simulated the geomagnetic activity experimentally and found that after 10 to 15 min of whole body exposure to 20 nT variations there was enhancement of spectral power for theta activity over the right parietal region.
