Dear Jenniekim

I am not seeing your MRI, so I cannot express my personal opinion.

CHRONIC INFARCT IN THE WHITE MATTER ADJACENT TO THE LEFT TRIGONE IT ALSO SAY MOST LIKELY A RESULT OF PERINATAL VASCUAL INSULT.

What this means is there is some area around your ventricles (deep in the brain) that suffered lack of blood supply during the time of birth.

Again: This is not my opinion, but what the report means.

thanks
