MRI BRAIN Abnormalities in a Case of Spinocerebellar Ataxia (SCA)


Spinocerebellar ataxia (SCA) comprises of a group of neurodegenerative disorders characterized by progressive cerebellar ataxia (either alone or in combination with other neurological system involvement). They are currently classified into various subtypes based on the underlying genetic defect. Currently, there are about 40 subtypes of SCA, referred to as SCA 1, SCA2, ….SCA 40.

Focal Cortical Gliosis and ULEGYRIA Causing Focal Epilepsy


Focal epilepsy affects only one side of body and in most cases, consciousness is preserved during seizures. However, in some cases, seizures can spread to the opposite side (known as secondary generalisation), which can lead to loss of consciousness. In several cases of focal epilepsy, structural changes on MRI can be seen. This case isContinue reading “Focal Cortical Gliosis and ULEGYRIA Causing Focal Epilepsy”
