COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease)

Chronic right parietal infarct



What is chronic right parietal infarct and what behavioral symptoms does it cause?


It means an old stroke. Occasionally, it is discovered incidentally by brain image (CT/MRI). In other words, it is silent and the patient is not aware that he suffered a stroke. However, generally it causes cognitive/behavioral changes depending on how big the stroke is and where exactly it is located. Common symptoms for such location of a stroke include confusion, disorientation and neglect of the left side. The patient must be evaluated for the cause of the stroke so that measures can be taken to prevent further/recurrent stroke.

Hope the above helps,
