mri finding after previous stroke
I had a stroke a last year.The doctors thought it was vasular(sjogrens or lupus) I have been fortunate I have recovered quite well.      My recent MRI showed: In distribution of the previosly seen left distal infarct,in the left temperal and parietal lobes,there now encephalomalacia,with parenchylmal thinning and t2 signal hypertensity. there is also gyriform t1signal hypertensity with accompaning low signal on t2, consistent with pseudolaminar necrosis. No diffusion restriction at this time. No new parenchymal leions. No lesions exerting positive mass effect and no abnormal enhancement following intravenous contrast administration. Appropriate flow voids of the large vessels at the skull base.
COMMENT
Findings consistent with chronic encephalomalcia in the site of a previously seen infarct, with appropriate evolution. No new lesions are identified. This is my diagnostic report.
I really am in the dark! I usually increase my prednisone when a flair hits. I have extreme vertigo and go half numb.
I'm worried of another stroke.I have not spoke wiyh my nereologist yet. I'd appriciate some opinions. Thanks
