A Case Report of Bilateral Ptosis as a Presentation in Diabetes Mellitus with Involvment in Corona Radiata
Journal of Case Reports in Medical Science, Volume 9, Issue 1,
Corona radiata is a highly cellular layer with an intracellular matrix consisting of proteins and a high concentration of carbohydrates, in particular. Infarcts can occur near the lateral angle of the lateral ventricle; this site is vulnerable because it is at the junction of the lateral lenticulo-striate artery, which perforates the long medullary penetrating arteries of the superior MCA. The syndrome may variously consist of pure hemiplegia and sensory loss in the face and arm. We report an adult male case presenting with isolated bilateral ptosis as a presentation of diabetes mellitus involving corona radiata.
