Radiology Case Reports


Parry-Romberg Syndrome (PRS) is a rare neurocutaneous disorder characterized by gradual facial hemiatrophy. We present a case study of a 64-year-old woman with late-onset PRS and linear scleroderma. The patient exhibited atypical PRS symptoms including leg numbness, hyper-reflexia, trigeminal neuralgia, and severe headaches. Diagnostic evaluations revealed chronic left-sided cerebral infarction, microhemorrhages, and nerve involvement. Treatment options for PRS are limited and aim to manage symptoms. This case highlights the diagnostic challenges of late-onset PRS, emphasizing interdisciplinary approach. Further research and improved therapies are essential for better patient outcomes.
