  9. 13. Morphology <ul><li>Round, unilobulated, sharp margin is most common </li></ul><ul><li>Dural tail : extension of tumor or dural reaction along dural surface </li></ul><ul><li>Edema is absent in 40% because of slow growth </li></ul>
  10. 15. Bony abnormalities <ul><li>No changes (common) </li></ul><ul><li>Hyperostosis (common) </li></ul><ul><li>Bone erosion (rare) </li></ul>

  13. 21. Case 2. <ul><li>32-year-old male with several week's history of headaches with increasing severity. </li></ul>
  14. 24. Differential Diagnosis <ul><li>Epidermoid tumor </li></ul><ul><li>Arachnoid cyst </li></ul><ul><li>Teratoma </li></ul>
  15. 25. Epidermoid Tumor (Inclusion Cyst) <ul><li>Benign masses that arise in a variety of locations within the CNS </li></ul><ul><li>The most common locations are in the posterior fossa and CP angle,in the quadrigeminal plate cistern, and under the temporal lobe </li></ul><ul><li>These tumors are extra -axial masses but can extend into the ventricles </li></ul>
  16. 26. Epidermoid Tumor (Inclusion Cyst) <ul><li>Not truly neoplastic and merely reflect an entity of ectodermal origin, one with desquamated skin </li></ul><ul><li>Similarly dermoid is of ectodermal origin, one with skin appendages like hair and sebaceous cysts </li></ul><ul><li>These are lumped together, as well as teratomas which are true neoplasms of multipotential germ cells </li></ul>
  17. 28. Another Analogy <ul><li>Think of types of salad dressings: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>You can have vinegar (epidermoids which are of singular density) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>You can have oil and vinegar (dermoids have fat and fluid </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>You can have oil and vinegar and croutons (teratomas have fat, fluid, and solid components) </li></ul></ul>
  18. 29. Epidermoid Tumor (Inclusion Cyst) <ul><li>M=F </li></ul><ul><li>Peak incidence in the 20-40 range </li></ul><ul><li>Extradural epidermoids are 9x less common than intradural ones and arise within the diploic space, petrous bone, and temporal bone with sclerotic borders </li></ul>
  19. 30. CT Findings <ul><li>Low density </li></ul><ul><li>Expand to fill the interstices of the CSF space </li></ul><ul><li>Aggressive at insinuating itself around normal brain structures and often has scalloped edges </li></ul><ul><li>Nonenhancing lobulated lesion </li></ul>
  20. 32. Distinguishing Epidermoid from Arachnoid Cyst <ul><li>MR is most useful </li></ul><ul><li>These lesions are hypointense on T1 and hyperintense on T2, similar to CSF </li></ul><ul><li>Intensity on proton density-weighted imaging is usually inhomogeneous and often hyperintense to CSF </li></ul><ul><li>KEY: flair imaging tells them apart </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Epidermoids are bright and cysts are black </li></ul></ul>

  25. 38. Trigeminal Schwannoma <ul><li>Benign tumors of Schwann cell origin, which are much less common than acoustic neuroma. </li></ul><ul><li>They may arise from any portion of the fifth cranial nerve, but most often arise from the semilunar ganglion portion of the nerve, within Meckel's cave. </li></ul><ul><li>Presenting complaints include trigeminal neuralgia or paresthesias within the trigeminal nerve distribution . </li></ul>
  26. 39.

  31. 48. Glioblastoma Multiforme <ul><li>Forty to fifty percent of primary central nervous system tumors are gliomas . </li></ul><ul><li>Approximately 50% of these are glioblastoma multiforme . </li></ul><ul><li>Glioblastoma multiforme refers to a malignant neoplasm with abundant glial pleomorphism, numerous mitotic figures and giant cells, vascular hyperplasia, and focal areas of necrosis. </li></ul>
  32. 49. Glioblastoma Multiforme <ul><li>5 th_ 7th decades </li></ul><ul><li>Usually develops in the cerebral hemispheres (more often in the frontal lobes than the temporal lobes or basal ganglia) but almost never in the cerebellum. </li></ul><ul><li>It grows as an irregular mass in the white matter and infiltrates the surrounding parenchyma by coursing along white matter tracts, frequently involving the corpus callosum and crossing the midline to produce the characteristic &quot; butterfly &quot; appearance. </li></ul>
  33. 50. Radiology <ul><li>Usually heterogeneous low density mass on CT </li></ul><ul><li>Strong contrast enhancement </li></ul><ul><li>Hemorrhage, necrosis common </li></ul><ul><li>Calcification uncommon </li></ul><ul><li>Extensive vasogenic edema and mass effect </li></ul><ul><li>Bihemispheric spread via c.c (butterfly lesion) </li></ul><ul><li>CSF seeding: drop metastases </li></ul>

  35. 55. Astrocytomas <ul><li>Represent 80% of gliomas </li></ul><ul><li>Most occur in cerebral hemispheres in adults </li></ul><ul><li>The differentiation of the types is made histologically, not by imaging </li></ul>

  42. 66. Oligodendroglioma
  43. 67. Oligodendroglioma <ul><li>Uncommon, slow growing glioma that presents as a large mass </li></ul><ul><li>5-10% of primary brain tumors </li></ul><ul><li>Peak age: 30-50 y.o </li></ul><ul><li>Usually tumors are mixed (astrocytoma/oligo) and rarely are “pure” </li></ul><ul><li>Located in cerebral hemispheres, most common in frontal lobe </li></ul>
  44. 68. Oligodendroglioma <ul><li>Typified by high rate of calcification (40-80%) </li></ul><ul><li>Peak age is 5 th -6 th decade </li></ul><ul><li>M>F </li></ul><ul><li>There are no known established risk factors </li></ul><ul><li>Recent epidemiological work has suggested that gliomas may be associated with repeated exposure to high-voltage electrical lines </li></ul>
  45. 69. Oligodendroglioma <ul><li>Because these tumors arise from oligodendrocytes, they usually occur in the cerebral white matter, and because there are relatively more oligodendrocytes in the frontotemporal area, oligodendrogliomas have a predilection for these areas. </li></ul><ul><li>As a result, the tumor may cause personality changes, or cause seizures, because of their infiltrative nature. </li></ul>
  46. 70. Oligodendroglioma <ul><li>The tumor, when pure, has a benign, course. </li></ul><ul><li>However, oligodendrogliomas are often histologically mixed (>50%) with astrocytic forms. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>When present, it acts as a medium grade neoplasm with a high rate of recurrence. </li></ul></ul>

Hemangioblastoma <ul><li>Benign neoplasms of vascular origin . </li></ul><ul><li>They are not malformations. </li></ul><ul><li>They account for less than 3% of all intracranial neoplasms. </li></ul><ul><li>These tumors are most common in young and middle-aged adults, where the incidence in males exceeds that of females. </li></ul>
  49. 73. Hemangioblastoma <ul><li>The cerebellar hemisphere is the most common location, although they may be located in the spinal cord , brain stem, or cerebral hemispheres. </li></ul><ul><li>10-20 percent of hemangioblastomas occur as part of the von Hippel-Lindau disease </li></ul>

  51. 75. MR Findings <ul><li>Cystic tumor with intense enhancement of the peripheral nodule following gadolinium administration. </li></ul><ul><li>If the vascular nodule has bled or is proteinaceous, it may be hyperintense on short TR precontrast sequences. </li></ul><ul><li>More than one enhancing tumor nodule may be seen. </li></ul><ul><li>40% of hemangioblastomas are solid and display variable degrees of contrast enhancement. </li></ul>
