  • Look Inside

A case of cerebral tuberculoma is reported with its representative MRI findings and the correspond-ing histological appearance. A 46-year-old female admitted to our hospital with complaint of left hemifacial seizure. CT scan discoled a slightly high density tumor (1.5cm in diameter) located in the right frontal lobe. This tumor was enhanced homogeneously by contrast media. While, MRI revealed three concentric layers within this tumor; the central core showed iso-and low signal intensity (SI) in T1- and T2-weighted imagings (T2WI), res-pectively.
