Enhancing soft tissue is seen involving pineal gland and infundibular recess, fairly characteristic of central nervous system germinoma.
Intracranial germinomas (also known as dysgerminomas, or extra-gonadal seminomas) are a type of germ cell tumor, and are predominantly seen in pediatric populations. They tend to occur in the midline, either at the pineal region (majority) or along the floor of the third ventricle/suprasellar region.
