A case of Nasu-Hakola's disease with T2-weighted MRI finding of reduced signal intensity in the thalamus and putamen

A case of Nasu-Hakola's disease with T2-weighted MRI finding of reduced signal intensity in the thalamus and putamen

Rinsho Shinkeigaku 32(4): 444-446

A 30-year-old female received a head injury at the age of 22 years. Subsequently neurological and psychiatric symptoms, such as personality change, urinary incontinence, dementia and gait disturbance developed. On admission, her cognitive function was severely impaired. Brain CT disclosed cerebral atrophy, dilatation of the lateral ventricle and calcification of the basal ganglia. Pathologically membranous structures were recognized in bone marrow. On the basis of these clinical findings, a diagnosis of Nasu-Hakola's disease was made. In this case, a T2-weighted MRI finding of reduced signal intensity in the thalamus and putamen was characteristic. This finding may be related to intracranial calcification.
