ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: glioblastoma

Findings: Radiology: Glioblastoma is usually seen as a grossly heterogeneous mass. Ring enhancement surrounding a necrotic center is the most common presentation, but there may be multiple rings. Surrounding vasogenic edema can be impressive, and adds significantly to the mass effect. Signs of recent (methemoglobin) and remote (hemosiderin) hemorrhage are common. Despite it’s apparent demarcation on enhanced scans, the lesion may diffusely infiltrate into the brain, crossing the corpus callosum in 50-75% of cases

No MeSH data available.
