Atalar MH, Salk I, Egilmez H - Pol J Radiol (2014)

Bottom Line: Radiological practice includes classification of illnesses with similar characteristics through recognizable signs.In this report, twenty-eight important and frequently seen neuroradiological signs in childhood are presented and described using X-rays, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance (MR) images, illustrations and photographs.

f16-poljradiol-79-479: Contrast-enhanced T1-weighted axial MR image confirming converging tubular structures that represent a venous angioma (white arrow) in the medial aspect of the right cerebellar lobe.

Mentions: The most common vascular malformation in the bran is venous angiomas. They are most commonly observed in the frontal lobe and the posterior fossa. It has been suggested that they stem from a pause during brain development, i.e. when the arterial system completes its development but the venous system is not fully developed yet. The caput medusa sign, also known as a palm tree sign, refers to developmental venous anomalies of the brain, where a number of veins drain centrally towards a single drain vein. (Figure 16). The appearance is reminiscent of Medusa, a gorgon of Greek mythology, who was encountered and defeated by Perseus. The sign is seen on both CT and MRI when contrast is administered [19,20].
