(Left) Axial Flair; (Middle) Coronal T1 with gadolinium; (Right) Sagittal T1 with gadolinium. Note the large enhancing mass invading the roof of the fourth ventricle. Compression of the fourth ventricle then resulted in non-communicating hydrocephalus (best seen on the Flair image). Surgical decompression showed the mass to be a medulloblastoma.
