Hypothalamic region

The hypothalamic region may be involved by a large variety of disease processes including tumors, inflammatory, and developmental disorders. The clinical manifestations include vision loss, behavioral changes, and endocrine abnormalities. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) play a pivotal role in evaluation of such patients by narrowing the list of differential diagnosis based on the imaging features. However, an accurate diagnosis may not be possible in all cases.
