Central neurocytoma

Case contributed by Assoc Prof Frank Gaillard

MRI of the brain including post contrast sequences demonstrates a large intraventricular mass filling and expanding the body of the right lateral ventricle. It has high T2 signal, low T1 signal and has multiple small cystic regions within it (bubble appearance). Following contrast administration only minimal heterogeneous enhancement is present. 

Case Discussion

This case illustrates typical appearances of a central neurocytoma, confirmed histologically.
