Brain metastases involving the interthalamic adhesion

Case contributed by Dr Roberto Schubert


Advanced breast cancer in a male patient.

Patient Data

Age: 65
Gender: Male

Bilateral thalamic (and some smaller peripheral) metastases. The larger, partly cystic lesion on the right traverses the midline across the 3rd ventricle.

Case Discussion

At least in some people the interthalamic adhesion is not simply an adhesion but a commissure (though not functionally important).
