MRI showed prominent sulci, thinning of the gyri over the convexities. Radiologist report showed no evidence of abnormal mass, mild cereberal sulcal prominence possibly indicative of a neuro degenerative disorder. Analysis?

My sons MRI showed prominent sulci and corresponding thinning of the gyri over the convexities. Radiologist report: There continues to be no evidence of abnormal mass, mass effect, or hemorrage. Side-by-Side comparison reveals mild progression of mild cereberal sulcal prominence possibly indicative of a neurodegerative disorder.

Hi! First of all madam/sir you have not mentioned about any neurological signs and symptoms for which your son underwent MRI.Secondly as the report is indicative of neurodegenerative disorder you need to tell whether there are any behavioral changes, whether the signs and symptoms are progressive or stationary .In young individuals there can be some metabolic disorders, mental disorders, specific family history of any mental disorders can be considered.
