    Tumefactive demyelination (TD) is a relatively uncommon entity which mimics other focal intracranial lesions. Conventional radiological findings in tumefactive demyelination have been well described. However, DTI and MRS findings in TD have not been studied in detail. Purpose: To evaluate the...

    The article discusses whether multiple acute small subcortical infarctions are caused by embolic mechanisms. It states that according to conventional teaching, an acute ischaemic stroke is characterised by infarction confined to a single localised region of the brain. However, new neuroimaging...

    There is sound evidence from histopathological and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) studies that focal ischemic brain lesions tend to increase in size over time. Considerable lesion growth was observed in models of animal stroke as well as in patients presenting with hemispheric stroke. In focal...

    White matter (WM) abnormalities are frequently seen on brain MRI of HIV positive (HIV+) patients. We aimed to determine the prevalence of unexplained WM abnormalities and their associations with HIV disease and cardiovascular risk factors. We conducted a retrospective, cross-sectional study of...
