ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Intracranial Immature Brain Teratoma

History: 5 week old baby girl with known Trisomy 21. She has one week of increasing head circumference, widening calvarial sutures, and increasingly prominent scalp veins.

Findings: US Brain: 5cm solid and cystic mass with areas of suggesting calcification and increased vascularity MRI Brain- Heterogeneous, lobulated mass measuring approximately 5.7cm x 6.2cm x 6.5cm that contains cystic regions and regions of hyper and hypointensity on T1 and T2 sequences. The mass is surrounded by edema in the right temporal, right frontal, and right parietal lobes. It is difficult to determine the origin of the mass but it does extend into the right lateral ventricle causing enlargement. There is marked enlargement of the ventricles.

Ddx: • Intracranial (brain) Teratoma • Ependymoma • Astrocytoma • Choroid Plexus Carcinoma • Primitive Neuroectodermal Tumor

Dxhow: Confirmed by Pathology

Exam: Age appropriate vital signs. Typical Down’s facies, macrocephalic with large open bulging anterior fontanelle with prominent scalp veins, moves all extremities well and equally. PERRL, normal suck and grasp reflexes.

No MeSH data available.


There is a heterogeneous lesion that appears to be in the right lateral ventricle.  It is causing marked enlargement of the lateral ventricles with the ventricle diameter estimated at 5cm.
