ABSTRACT

In this case report we present the neuroimaging findings and clinical features of two patients with a bilateral perisylvian syndrome not related to malformations, but probably to ischemic etiology. Evaluations including history, general and neurologic examinations, electroencephalograms, and imaging data were reviewed as recent literature about the subject.

Key words:bilateral perisylvian syndrome, pseudobulbar paralysis, CT-scan, magnetic resonance imaging.


RESUMO

Neste relato de caso, apresentamos os achados de neuroimagem e os aspectos clínicos de dois pacientes com síndrome peri-silviana bilateral não relacionada a malformações, mas provavelmente a uma etiologia isquêmica. Avaliações, incluindo história, exames físico e neurológico, eletrencefalograma e aspectos de imagem foram revistos, assim como a literatura recente sobre o assunto.

Palavras-chave:síndrome peri-silviana bilateral, paralisia pseudobulbar, tomografia computadorizada, imagem por ressonância magnética.
