Dawson’s fingers

“Dawson’s Fingers” is the name for the multiple sclerosis lesions around the ventricle-based brain veins of Multiple Sclerosis patients.
The condition is supposed to be the result of inflammation or mechanical damage by blood pressurearound long axis of medular veins.

Dawson’s fingers spread along, and from, large periventricular collecting veins, and are attributed to perivenular inflammation.
Lesions far away from these veins are known as Steiner’s splashes
