Meningioma with dural tail

Case contributed by A.Prof Frank Gaillard

Presentation

Incidental finding on CT.

Patient Data

Age: Adult
MRI

Selected images from an MRI demonstrate typical features of a meningioma. It appears as a vividly enhancing extra-axial mass with a dural tail which is almost isointense to grey matter on both T1 and T2 weighted images. It also demonstrates diffusion restriction.

Case Discussion

This is a typical appearance for a small parafalcine meningioma and no other differential should be entertained. It also elegantly demonstrates a dural tail.
