Extract

A previously healthy 26-year-old woman was seen with a progressive left-side weakness lasting 3 days. A brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan showed a right-sided mass lesion with hyperintensity in fluid-attenuated inversion recovery and T2 sequences, hypointensity in T1, heterogeneous gadolinium enhancement, and no restriction in diffusion-weighted images (Figure 1A-C).

Figure 1. Axial Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

Axial MRI reveals fluid-attenuated inversion recovery hyperintense lesions (A and B) with gadolinium enhancement (C). Ten months later, a “mirror” image was seen (D and E); gadolinium was not perfused because of her pregnancy (F). Her last MRI revealed residual lesions (G and H) without gadolinium enhancement (I).
