Meningioma - Solitary Tentorial

A 74 year-old woman presented with right sided headaches and a neglect syndrome.

Note the Isointense Tumor on T1   Show the Gadolinium Enhancement   Show the Vasogenic Edema

MRI Scans (Left Upper) T1 axial; (Right Upper) T1 axial with gadolinium; (Bottom left) Flair axial ; (Bottom right) Coronal with gadolinium.  Note the large, well demarcated mass which is attached to the tentorium. The mass is isodense on T1 but strongly enhances with gadolinium (upper right).  On the Flair image, note the prominent surrounding vasogenic edema and mass effect. This location is typical of a meningioma.  Meningiomas are common tumors.  They are typically benign histologically, and treatable with surgical resection if they are in an accessible location.
