Case contributed by Dr Maxime St-Amant



Patient Data

Age: 50
Gender: Female

Small focus of susceptibility artefacts on SWI in the posterior paramedian right hemipons with stippled enhancement and faint corresponding T2 hyperintense signal in keeping with a small capillary telangiectasia. It was not visible on T2 (not shown). It is not hypointense on the filtered phase, suggesting blood products rather than calcification. 

Case Discussion

The findings are in keeping with pontine capillary telangiectasia, an incidental finding on brain imaging.
