Radiologic Findings A B C D Fig. 1 (A) Sagittal and (B) axial postcontrast T1W images demonstrate multiple round heterogeneously enhancing lesions within the supratentorial and infratentorial brain. The lesions appear randomly distributed and reside predominately at gray-white matter interfaces. (C) Axial T2W FLAIR depicts the surrounding T2 hyperintense white matter vasogenic edema, which is more conspicuous than the T2-isointense lesions. (D) Axial T2* GRE reveals that some of these lesions demonstrate susceptibility most consistent with internal hemorrhagic products and/or mineralization.
D) Axial brain and (E) bone algorithm NCCT images reveal scalloping of the inner table of the right temporal bone consistent with the slow growth of this lesion. Hypoattenuation within the mass corresponds to the multiple cysts seen on the MRI. indd 27 11/8/12 11:26 PM 28 • • CASE-BASED BRAIN IMAGING Dysembryoplastic neuroepithelial tumor (favors frontal and anterior temporal lobes, but may be indistinguishable) Gangliocytoma (contains only neuronal elements, differentiated pathologically) Discussion Background Gangliogliomas are slow-growing primary brain tumors that contain both neoplastic neuronal and glial elements.
