3 and 1 cm in diameter (compatible with abscess) at the white matter of the left cerebral parietooccipital
In addition, the lateral ventricles were enlarged more prominently in the parietooccipital
region, and a large encephalomalacic cyst was present in the right occipital lobe (Figures 2, C, and 3).
16], Murri et al showed that EEG is a highly sensitive tool for temporal, fronto-central and parietooccipital
cortical-subcortical infarctions than for basal ganglia and internal capsule lesions.
Posterior callosotomy using a parietooccipital
interhemispheric approach in the semi-prone park-bench position.
The typical MRI findings of RPLS are edematous lesions involving the white matter in the posterior portions of the cerebral hemispheres, particularly bilaterally in the parietooccipital
regions in 98% of the patients [9, 11, 12], although other areas of the brain such as the frontal lobes (78.
When the cause is an obstruction of blood flow, the temporal and parietal lobes are the most expected sites to be affected as cystic encephalomalacia [2, 3] while thinning of cerebral cortex predominantly in parietooccipital
lobes is reported in several studies in hypoglycemic conditions .
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed a lesion in the right parietooccipital
A contrast-enhanced cranial computed tomography (CT) scan showed 2 lesions (3-4-mm) with rim enhancement and perifocal edema at the right occipital and left parietooccipital
Physical examination revealed caput succedaneum, which was 5 x 6 cm in diameter in the right parietooccipital
region of the head, flaccid paralysis of the right upper extremity, and a palpable mass in the right middle area of the abdomen.
3 A 54-year-old woman with isolated left parietooccipital
lobe metastasis of cervix carcinoma was reported by Amita et al.
Other reported locations include tongue, parietooccipital
region and inside the skull (Howard and Bowles, 1988).
The cranial MR showed multiple demyelinating lesions at periventricular and yuxtacortical level, with a relative predominance in the parietooccipital
areas, and also an important number of lesions in the brain stem.
