(Left) T2-weighted axial MRI; (Middle) T1-weighted axial MRI; (Right) T1-weighted axial MRI with gadolinium. Note the large tumor with partial enhancment arising from the posterior medial temporal/occipital lobe and spreading into the lateral ventricles. The lesion was biopsied but was difficult to classify and grade since it had features of both an astrocytoma and oligodendroglioma.
