My husband, a 55 year old with history of Crohns, Heart Stents places and Emphesymea has had severe symptoms such as Exhaustion, That is very severe, Headaches, Numbing face head, extremeties. Right Eye looked diffrent from left, severe nosebleeds and wheezing,out of breath. A catscan of chest showed new nodules, Catscan of Brain Poss Meningioma in Sphenoid Process and Catscan of spine showed that the Meningioma can be viewed partially. A thickening of the Trachea as well. Sent again in severe pain to Neurologist who did not read reports before examining and when noticed the lump on neck sent for MRI W/W/O Contrast. The results are following. Brain shows Meningioma again sphenoid process and requires further tests It also shows modeate white matter disease in both areas of brain. This is the Findings of the Spine and Im concerened. Again, I can only say Ive been watching him deteriorate in both mental and physical ways I can not even describe.. My question is this as I pulled reprt and still have not heard from Drs! Can the results of this Mri be due to any growths or tumors> Any help to put this picture together to help him would be appreciated.
Rule out right C5-6 nerve root compression.
Cervical spine MRI was obtained on a 1.5 Tesla High Field Wide Bore Espree MRI with
multiple multiplanar pulse sequences acquired prior to and following the intravenous
administration of 7 cc of Gadavist.
There is straightening of the normal cervical lordosis.
There is disc desiccation throughout the cervical spine.
At the C2-3 level, there is disc bulging and posterior osteophytes. There is minimal left
neural foraminal stenosis.
At the C3-4 level, there are anterior and posterior osteophytes and a right parasagittal and
foraminal disc herniation which compresses the right aspect of the spinal cord and results in
narrowing of the right neural foramen and mass effect upon the exiting right C4 nerve root.
At the C4-5 level, there is mild disc bulging. Bilateral facet degenerative changes are
present. There is mild bilateral uncovertebral joint hypertrophy. There is moderate right
and mild left neural foraminal stenosis.
At the C5-6 level, there are anterior and posterior osteophytes, disc space narrowing and
circumferential disc bulging. There is spinal cord compression due to prominent osteophytic
ridging. There is severe bilateral neural foraminal stenosis with mass effect upon the exiting
C6 nerve roots bilaterally. Bilateral facet and ligamentous hypertrophic degenerative
changes are present.
At the C6-7 level, there are posterior osteophytes and circumferential disc bulging. There is
mild right and moderate left neural foraminal stenosis.
At the C7-T1 level, there is very slight disc bulging.
The marrow signal is normal. No intrinsic spinal cord abnormality is identified.
