In 20 ischemic cases, site of involvement in decreasing order were Lobar and capsular 11 (39.2%) each, lentiform nucleus and thalamus 2 (7.1%) each, caudate nucleus and brain stem 1 (3.57%) each. In 20 ischemic cases, 18 (61.4%) lesions were located in the MCA out of 20 ischemic cases 9 showed loss of gray/white differentiation and 2 showed obscuration of lentiform nucleus. Out of 20 ischemic cases 2 (10%) showed hyperdense middle cerebral artery sign.

Abstract


In 20 ischemic cases, site of involvement in decreasing order were Lobar and capsular 11 (39.2%) each, lentiform nucleus and thalamus 2 (7.1%) each, caudate nucleus and brain stem 1 (3.57%) each. In 20 ischemic cases, 18 (61.4%) lesions were located in the MCA out of 20 ischemic cases 9 showed loss of gray/white differentiation and 2 showed obscuration of lentiform nucleus. Out of 20 ischemic cases 2 (10%) showed hyperdense middle cerebral artery sign.
