Porencephalic cyst

Case contributed by Dr Mostafa Mahmoud El Feky



Patient Data

Age: 52
Gender: Female

Intra-axial well defined cystic lesion at the left tempro-parietal region that is strictly follows CSF in all basic sequences with free diffusion.

Case Discussion

Normal appearance of sylvian fissure and nearby extra-axial space with no external mass effect.

Surrounding white matter and lateral ventricle wall  around the inner surface of the lesion and the outer wall looks continuous with brain surface .

It is not lined by a grey matter and is associated with a small amount of adjacent FLAIR hyper-intensity.

Features are more suggestive of intra-axial cyst ... mostly porencephalic cyst.
