Show the Tumor                                                    Show the Gadolinium Enhancement

MRI Scans: (Left) T1-weighted axial; (Right) T1-weighted axial with gadolinium.  Note the well demarcated mass which enhances with gadolinium, and nearly obliterates the foramen magnum. Surgical resection demonstrated that the mass was a meningioma arising from the clivus. Many of the patient's symptoms resulted from obstructive hydrocephalus.
