foci symptons of right frontal & parietal lobes, left lateral ventricle
My recent MRI shows "Several foci of T2 increased signal within the periventricular white matter with 2 large foci adjacent to the body of the left lateral ventricle with small foci involving the right frontal and parietal lobes. Foci of increased T2 signal in the high right parietal regaion involving sub cortical white matter."
What symptons would i have and what areas of the body/functions would it effect?

Hi, Thank you for your question. Your reports suggest that you may have white matter disease. In white matter disease or microvesicular ischemic disease of brain, pathology is associated with the brain white matter, either exclusively or in combination with grey matter changes. It occurs due to metabolism errors, exogenous toxins released by virus, autoimmune disease, leukodystrophy, demyelination, and radiation effects. Spasticity, muscle weakness, paralysis, hyper-reflexia and movement disorder may be the clinical features associated with white matter disease that need to be evaluated thoroughly. However, it is sad to say that there is no permanent cure but conservative treatment & physiotherapy exercises that would help you to regain your normal function and stopping the further progression of the disease. Please consult a neurologist in this regards. Hope this helps.
