Parenchymal atrophic changes present in the suptra tentorial level.

Case Discussion

The imaging findings described above are consistent with extensive bilateral cystic encephalomalacia and brain parenchymal atrophy. This patient most likely had suffered from hypoxic/ischemic insult and the brain pattern resembles sequelae of hypoxic/ischemic ecephalopathy.
