Swelling on Left Side face, tremors on hands with burning, vision problem in left eye. Need advise on the brain MRV report ?

*Swelling on Lt Side face ,both UL&LtLL *Tremous on both hand *Pain in Lt LL Lt ULwhen Sitting *Vision problem in left eye *burning on both hand & leg & also I’d done MRV of my brain and report of that goes something like this : “Hypointense areas on the Fast Scan (T2 *) images are seen in the globus pallidus bilaterally which may represent calcium/paramagnetic substance deposition. The visualized optic nerves show normal calibre and signal characteristics on either side. The cavernous sinuses bilaterally are unremarkable. The left superior opthalmic vein is prominent. Both the lateral, third and fourth ventricles are normal. The basal cisternal spaces are unremarkable. There is no shift of the midline structures. The right vertebral artery is smaller in calibre as compared to the opposite side. Inflammatory changes are noted in the mastoid air cells bilaterally. Incidental note is made of mild deviation of the nasal septum to the right, hypertrophied right middle and inferior nasal turbinates with right middle turbinates concha bullosa and left maxillary sinusitis.”

Thanks for writing in.

From what you have written, there appears to be calcification in the globus pallidum area of basal ganglia on both sides. This is an important part of the brain. However calcification in this region can occur in many diseases.

There is prominence of the left superior ophthalmic vein. This vein is important because it communicates with the cavernous sinus. However the cavernous sinus appears normal in your MRI.

The mastoid air cells (behind the ears) are having some kind of inflammation.

Hope this helps.
