Hi there. Other causes of white spots on brain MRI are tumor, infection, vascular insult, migraines, small vessel ischemic disease and multiple sclerosis. Other demyelinating disease are, leukodystrophies, central pontine myelinosis and progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy. hope this helps. Consult a neurologist for evaluation. Take care.
