Alzheimer disease

Case contributed by A.Prof Frank Gaillard

Presentation

Elderly patient with memory loss.

Modality: MRI

MRI of the brain demonstrates cerebral volume loss, particularly pronounced in the temporal and parietal lobes, which is consistent with the clinical impression of Alzheimer disease

Multiple white matter T2 hyperintense regions suggest a concurrent component of chronic small vessel ischaemic change.
