Outline the Lesion

Axial MRI T1-weighted scan with Gadolinium. Note the large subependymal nodule on the right. This is a giant tuber in a patient with tuberous sclerosis (TS). In TS, several abnormalities may be present on brain imaging including, cortical tubers (hamartomas) subependymal nodules that usually calcify and are multiple and bilateral; and subependymal giant cell astrocytomas that are most frequently found at the foramen of Monro.
