I beilieve that it looks like either a stroke or cancer
Showed this to my doctor this morning and he had no idea. However, he's a GP not a neurologist. Hopefully my neural. would know. Glad my MRIs didn't look like this.
Pituitary adenoma. So bitemporal hemianopia and systemic sx related to type of cell.
Pituitary macroadenoma with apoplexy. Symptoms will be headache, visual difficulty & pituitary dysfunction
Craniopharingioma. Vision problems inc. peripheral vision defects
Appears like a craniopharyngioma pushing into the third ventricle.
pituitary adenoma-Cushing's Disease?high bp, obesity, diabetes, mood issues, striae, and 70+ other symptoms
looks like craniopharyngioma, may possible be removed via nose, performed here at George Washington #GWH
As a blind person I know how much it sucks to get them
Kind of brain -tumor? It would be blind and have a frequent headaches or migrines.
Probable slowed speech, diphtherial symptoms. Just guess.
Pt would be blind, It's pushing on the optic chiasm, I think. Pituitary tumor I believe
Pituitary tumor? Probably some wicked hormonal shifts - stunted growth?
cancer of the brain stem? trauma to the brain stem resulting from car accident perhaps?
