I had a 23y f pt presented to our unit compilaining of headache since 7years , high blood pressure since 2years , palpitaion from time to time with rest of body function tested it showed -ve to any cardiac or blood disorder
doctor ordered head CT scan with contrast,
as CT scan done radiolodiest reported -ve brain tumor and reported a presence of small osteoma in the skull!!
!! could this cause all the mesioned symptoms this patient having?!
I attached link to pic of the CT Brain if any body has an idea please share it!
- 0Jan 22, '10 by LacourtyHer diagnoses definitely could be causing the symptoms. I've seen cases where tumors were a direct cause of the headaches but the location of the tumor and osteoma may have something to do with it as well. I wasn't able to view brain CT and probably wouldn't know enough by looking at them anyhow. You can always check with the radiologist. I know not many are very approachable but I used to work with a great one that always wanted to teach me. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.
