Brain abscess observed by localized proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy

, : Brain abscess observed by localized proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy. Magnetic Resonance Imaging 12(8): 1269-1274

We encountered a case of brain abscess that was difficult to differentiate from glioblastoma. Localized 1H-MRS was found to be useful for obtaining information on the biochemical status of brain abscess. The peak of lipid and high residual peak of NAA (N-acetyl-aspartate) were observed in the cystic lesion of the brain abscess by 1H-MRS. The NAA/Cho (Choline-containing compounds) ratio in brain parenchyma showing an edematous lesion before therapy gradually increased with the relief of inflammation.

AFLR, a DNA-binding protein of 444 amino acids, transactivates the expression of aflatoxin biosynthesis genes in A. parasiticus and A. flavus, as well as the sterigmatocystin synthesis genes in Aspergillus nidulans. It was shown that by fusion of...
