Woman has lemon-sized hole in brain

Until she was 26 years old, Cole Cohen had no idea why she couldn’t tell time, learn how to drive, cross a street on her own, or know how long to hug someone.

Finally, an occupational therapist in her native Portland, Ore., suggested Cohen get an MRI, and on the morning of June 17, 2007, she and her parents met with her neurologist, Dr. Volt, for the results.

In her new memoir, “Head Case: My Brain and Other Wonders,” she describes receiving her diagnosis.

“Dr. Volt is behind his desk; his computer monitor is turned toward us. I don’t understand the image in front of me. It’s a black-and-white splice of a brain, I assume mine, with an inky black spot on it in the shape of a lopsided heart.

“I tell myself that this is a spot on the film, which it’s way too large to actually be. It’s something not to worry about, something I don’t understand that the doctor will explain away.

“We are all staring dumbly at the image on the screen until Dr. Volt begins to speak. ‘So, this is your brain . . . and this’ — he points with a pencil to the black spot — ‘is a hole.’ The image comes into focus. It is not debatable.

“A hole.”
“Yes.”
“There is a hole in my brain.”
“Yes.”

Cohen asked the next obvious question: How big is it?

Dr. Volt took his pencil and pointed to the image of her eyeballs on the scan. He tapped from one eyeball to the hole, back and forth, until he filled the void.

“About 20 eyeballs,” he said. “About the size of a lemon. Or, say, a small fist? Like the fist of a 10-year-old?”

As far as Cohen knows, there has never been another recorded case like hers. After her appointment with Dr. Volt, she and her parents went to lunch at a Chinese restaurant, where they largely sat in silence.

自幼學習障礙 竟真是「腦袋有洞」

美國俄勒岡州一名被視為有學習困難和注意力不足過動症的女子,在26歲接受磁核共振檢查,才發現腦部有一個與檸檬般的大洞。

珂兒‧柯恩(Cole Cohen)從小就無法應付各種事情,連基本算術都學不會,看不懂時鐘,也無法判斷迎面而來的車輛距離還有多遠。她在2007年至俄州波特蘭家鄉找醫生做磁核共振造影掃描,才解開謎團。雖然至今已事隔八年,但專家仍找不到類似案例。

「每日郵報」報導說,柯恩出書描述本身經歷,表示她與父母聽取診斷時,醫生用電腦螢幕呈現她的腦部掃描圖像,顯示她的腦部有個大洞。

醫生說,如果這個洞位於腦前葉,柯恩會嚴重心智殘障,可是由於這個大洞是在腦部頂葉部分,因此損害比較不明顯。她的腦部出現這種情況,是因為液體把頂葉推向右側,使左側受到損傷。

醫生指點她必須加強訓練腦子,不能嬌慣它。矯正方法非常簡單:把電腦文件夾放在螢幕左邊,上課時坐在教室右邊,以讓右腦處理來自左側的訊息。

柯恩有很多年都不知道自己為什麼無法適應現實世界。她英文成績一流,數學卻怎麼教都教不會,無法開車,也不會看地圖。

她連跟人互動都非常費心。她說:「我真的會盯著手表,以決定要過多久才能跟室友打招呼。像擁抱這種動作也會讓我感到緊張。」

真相大白後一切終於豁然開朗,並協助她瞭解自己的能力,不再無謂的勉強自己。她說:「我的問題不只是算零錢和看時間,而是我對現實的感受、影像和看世界的方式與別人不同。」


這種痛苦不是一般人能明白的,據說事主曾為此而跳車自殺Q__Q
不過從另一方面看,現代不少奇難雜症都得到證實
比起以前一些特殊病患者只會被標籤「有問題」卻不知是哪種病也算是比較好了......
