Hi,
Thanks for being on healthcaremagic.com.
I am Dr. Ajay Panwar, Neurologist, here to answer your query.


I shall be glad to help you in this regard, however, I need to see your MRI report for the same. You mentioned severe atrophy... Is it cerebral atrophy or pituitary atrophy?

I need the clarification regarding the same. Please upload the MRI report as a scanned file so that I can guide you specifically.
