This patient was a 35-year-old female who presented with nonspecific complaints of headache and a single unwitnessed possible seizure. Her past medical history was noncontributory. An MRI demonstrated the following abnormality...
|Coronal T1 post-contrast|
|Sagittal T1 post-contrast|
Neurosurgery was consulted; a stereotactic biopsy was undertaken shortly thereafter.
Bonus points for naming the eponymously-named cells which suggest the proper etiology.
Hint - remembering the entire radiologic differential diagnosis for ring-enhancing lesions in the CNS will significantly narrow the differential diagnosis.
