A 42-year-old gentleman presented with progressive loss of dexterity and pyramidal weakness of right upper limb for three months duration. There was no cognitive decline, tongue/limb muscle atrophy, fasciculation or sensory loss. Our patient fulfilled the criteria for primary lateral sclerosis except the duration criteria of three years.
Wine glass appearance has been previously described in primary lateral sclerosis with white matter confluent symmetrical hyperintensities of both corticospinal tracts in the coronal section. The hyperintensities of the corticospinal tract of a single side may be considered as an early sign of primary lateral sclerosis [Figure 1].
|Figure 1: MRI Brain T2 FLAIR coronal section shows left corticospinal tract hyperintensity. Right corticospinal tract appears normal|
