My 16 year old daughter has had a couple MRIs for acute headaches, falls, "zoning out" spells and weak immune system. I have MS and they were checking for possible pediatric MS. She does have tourette's syndrome. 1st MRI - Old ischemic infarct in the righ temporal lobe, 1 cm in medial of right temporal lobe. Dark on T1 and bright on T2. Other doctor said possible enlarged Virchow-Robin space. 2nd MRI - Mild asymmetry in the temporal horns of the lateral ventricles. Should I be worried or is this all normal? Your assistance is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

This is a bit outside my field of expertise but some degree of asymmetry is considered normal. I would recommend you discuss this with a pediatric neurologist to get a more specific answer in our daughter's situation. The neurologist can also help guide evaluation for her headaches and other problems.
