f11-poljradiol-79-479: Post-contrast T1-weighted MR image showing an incomplete ring lesion enhancing in the right parietal region (black arrow).

Mentions: The open ring sign is a relatively specific sign for demyelination, helpful in distinguishing between ring enhancing lesions. It is observed in patients with multiple sclerosis. It is observed as a lesion showing contrast effect as a circle that incompletely encircles a demyelinated plaque. The lesion is a high-intensity one on T2W images and it may be difficult to distinguish from an abscess or astrocytoma in this form (Figure 11) [13,14].
