Abstract
A 27-year-old female presented with repeated seizures. As the left frontal lobe volume was enlarged in comparison with the right frontal lobe, hemimegalencephaly was suggested. Abnormal white matter fiber tracts running from the left frontal lobe to the fornix and hippocampus were found on diffusion tensor imaging (DTI). We performed quantitative measurements of brain volume and confirmed hemimegalencephaly. DTI and MRI-based volumetry techniques could be useful to objectively diagnose hemimegalencephaly. 27세 여성이 반복적인 경련을 주소로 내원하였다. 좌측 전두엽의 부피가 우측 전두엽과 비교하여 커져 있었기 때문에 편측거대뇌증이 의심되었다. 좌측 전두엽에서부터 뇌활과 해마에 이르는 비정상적인 백색질 섬유로가 확산 텐서 영상에서 발견되었다. 또한 뇌의 부피를 정량적으로 측정하고 편측거대뇌증을 확인하였다. 확산 텐서 영상과 자기공명영상 기반의 체적측정 기법은 편측거대뇌증을 객관적으로 진단하는 데 유용할 수 있다.
