A 52 year-old woman presented with headaches, vertigo and falling.
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 medulla. Surgical resection demonstrated that the mass was a meningioma arising from the clivus. Many of the patient's symptoms resulted from obstructive hydrocephalus.
