Easily Seen on MRI?
« on: October 19, 2017, 08:44:27 pm »
My husband had an MRI and was diagnosed with AN by nuerologist. The radiologist however doesn't agree and says the neurologist is mistaking the basilar artery for AN. Just wondering if anyone else had anything like this happen.

Welcome to the forum Maven. If the alleged tumor is so small that it has to distinguish from the basilar artery, then it's academic. Small tumors are just observed. No action required, other than a follow up MRI in 6 months.

Are there any symptoms like unilateral hearing loss, dizziness, imbalance?

Hmmm The Basal Artery is pretty big! Cant mistake that for an AN
10x5x5mm AN
Sudden Partial hearing loss 5/28/10
Diagnosed 7/4/10
CK 7/27/10
2/21/11 Swelling 13x6x7mm
10/16/11 Hearing returned, balance improved. Feel totally back to normal most days
3/1/12 Sudden Hearing loss, steroids, hearing back.
9/16/13 Life is just like before my AN. ALL Good!
