ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Diffuse Astrocytoma WHO Gr 2

History: This patient is a 35 year old man who presents after a fall. He has no history of seizures or focal neurologic deficits.

Findings: Right frontal lobe lesion without midline shift or sulcal effacement, measuring 3.5 x 2.9 x 3.0 cm. On CT, the lesion low attenuation compared to brain. On MRI, it has corresponding low signal on T1 and high on T2. There is no post-contrast enhancement and demonstrates no suppression on FLAIR.

Ddx: • Diffuse astrocytoma (Gr 2 or Gr 3) • Pleomorphic Xanthoastrocytoma (PXA) • Pilocytic astrocytoma • Anaplastic astrocytoma • DNET (dysembryoplastic neuroepithelial tumor) • Neurocysticercosis • Metastasis

Dxhow: Surgical biopsy

Exam: No focal neurologic deficits.
