Cerebral infarction vs. glioblastoma

Case contributed by Dr Bruno Di Muzio


Undefined history of partial left motor deficit.

Patient Data

Age: 72
Gender: Female

CT Brain

CT images show a right frontoparietal lesion with enhanced rim, mass effect and surrounded by vasogenic oedema.

Case Discussion

Considering the unclear history of neurological deficits and CT appearance of the lesion it is reasonable to consider the possibility of a brain tumour, especially a glioblastoma

Stereotactic biopsy and follow up confirmed the diagnosis of cerebral infarction.
