A) Axial T2W FLAIR and (B) axial postcontrast T1W demonstrate a predominately T2 hyperintense mass that heterogeneously enhances and is centered within the right lateral medulla and inferior cerebellum. There is mild encroachment of the mass on the fourth ventricle. No cysts are identified. indd 28 image reveals a focus of internal susceptibility effect consistent with calcifications, which was confirmed on a corresponding CT examination (not shown). (D) Coronal postcontrast T1W image shows globular enhancement involving the inferior right cerebellum, medulla, and upper cervical spinal cord.
Pathology Gross • • • Usually well-circumscribed gray-white rounded nodules of variable size; any area may be affected, but the gray-white junction is a favored location May be solid, cystic, mixed, or necrotic (Fig. 2A,B) Calcification or hemorrhage may be present Microscopic Varies with histology of primary tumor Imaging Findings Classically described as round, enhancing lesions at the gray-white matter interface with surrounding edema. indd 37 Usually iso- or hypodense precontrast May be hyperdense if hemorrhagic or calcified, or if there is a high nuclear:cytoplasmic ratio Homogeneous or peripheral enhancement postcontrast 11/8/12 11:49 PM 38 CASE-BASED BRAIN IMAGING A Fig.
1 (A, B) Two sequential axial T2W FLAIR images demonstrate abnormal T2 hyperintensity involving the left subinsular and bilateral periatrial white matter with extension to the splenium of the corpus callosum. There is subtle expansion of these white matter structures with preservation of the brain’s underlying architectural structure. In addition, a more inferior axial T2W image (C) reveals a similar expansile T2 hyperintense lesion within the left superior cerebellum causing mass effect upon the left posterolateral pons and superior cerebellar peduncle.
