Dear readers,

Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 25 years. It was first published as the name of Inonu University Medical Journal and later as Journal of Turgut Ozal Medical Center. During its publication period, the journal accepted Turkish or English articles for publication.

Abstracting in an international index is just a paramount objective in the 25th year of the journal. Because of this goal, it was necessary to make a decision both in terms of journal name and publication language. It was important in this respect that the name of a general medical journal should be related to medicine again and it should be in English. For these reasons, the name of the journal was switched to Annals of Medical Research and its publication language is changed to in English. The logo of the journal was chosen as an apricot, which is the symbol of our city Malatya, the world capital of apricot. I hope the journal succeeds with its new name. Annals of Medical Research is published monthly.

Abstract

Aim: This study aims to describe the lesion characteristics of conventional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of patients who are directed to a university hospital with a pre-diagnosis of demyelinating disease who are finally diagnosed as MrWMLs.
Material and Methods: Individuals who were referred to an MS outpatient clinic of a university hospital with a pre-diagnosis of demyelinating disease and finally diagnosed with migraine according to the International Classification of Headache Disorders (ICHD) -3 (β) criteria who also have MrWMLs and 45 age and gender-matched individuals who are diagnosed with MS according to the 2017 McDonald diagnostic criteria, without migraine-type headache were retrospectively analyzed.
Results: Forty-five individuals with migraine and 45 age and gender-matched individuals who are diagnosed with MS were included. The median time since diagnosis was 10 (0.5-32) years for the migraine group and 5 (0.3-20) years in the group with MS (p=0.031). The median age of the group with migraine was 35 (23-54) years, while the median age of the group with MS was 34 (20-55) years. There was no significant difference between the groups in terms of average age and gender distribution (p=0.342 and p=0.389). The total number of T1 and T2 lesions were significantly higher in the MS group. Similarly, the number of infratentorial and periventricular lesions was higher in the MS group (p0.001). The number of deep white matter lesions was higher in the migraine group (p0.05).
Conclusion: In this study, conventional MRI tips were defined for differentiating MS lesions from MrWMLs which has an important place in the differential diagnosis of MS. MrWMLs were deep white matter lesions that are predominantly located at the frontal and parietal lobes. Studies involving more individuals and using automated segmentation software may provide more information to differentiate MrWMLs from MS lesions.

Keywords: Multiple sclerosis; migraine; white matter lesions
