Hemorrhagic choroidal fissure cyst

Case contributed by Dr Bahman Rasuli

Presentation

Headache.

Patient Data

Age: 55 years
Gender: Male

Signal void round lesion is present at the left choroidal fissure. 

High signal foci in T2 and flair sequences at sub cortical and periventricular white matter of both cerebral hemispheres depict microvascular ischemic events.

 

Case Discussion

Choroidal fissure cyst is often incidentally discovered and usually has a benign course without symptoms. Choroidal fissure cyst may rarely present with intracystic hemorrhage, enlargement of the cyst and increasing symptomatology.

It is, of course, possible that this represents an alternative diagnosis such as a cavernoma.
