Abstract

Dysplastic gangliocytoma (Lhermitte-Duclos disease [LDD]) typically presents as a PTEN (phosphatase and tensin homolog)-positive, insidious unilateral mass of the cerebellar cortex. Patients can present with symptoms of increased intracranial pressure. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) w...read more

Magnetic Resonance Imaging: Brain

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a non-invasive imaging technique that uses a powerful magnetic field and radio waves to generate images of the area of interest. MRI of the brain is commonly performed to visualize the brain and related structures in detail. Discover the latest research of MRI and the brain here.

Hamartoma Syndrome, Multiple

Multiple Hamartoma Syndrome, also known as Cowden disease, is a hereditary autosomal dominant condition associated with mutations in tumor suppressor PTEN. Here is the latest research.
