What causes ischemic areas in frontal lobe and white matter?
Iam a 26 year old female experiencing severe headaches at the back of my head.An MRI brain scan was done and it shows that the theres are Ischemic areas involving the bilateral frontal lobe and posterior periventricular white matter. What could be the cause of this and Can this be corrected
Human brain is a complicated structure and having changes in the white or the grey matter is little complicated. Sometimes brain tissues takes its own call to decide the modifications. It may be pathological issue, work related issue, infection etc.
We need to correlate the MRI scan along with the clinical symptoms to come to a conclusion. Based on which the treatment can be initiated by medical intervention.
As there are ischemic changes there must be a lack of blood supply yo the particular parts or the brain and why this happened is not known without any clinical and lab test.
Visiting a neurologist should help you to get some precise medication based on the diagnosis.
