Showed this to my doctor this morning and he had no idea. However, he's a GP not a neurologist. Hopefully my neural. would know. Glad my MRIs didn't look like this.

Pt would be blind, It's pushing on the optic chiasm, I think. Pituitary tumor I believe

Pituitary tumor? Probably some wicked hormonal shifts - stunted growth?

cancer of the brain stem? trauma to the brain stem resulting from car accident perhaps?
