Too much time on the cell phone!
Let's call House!! He and his team are good at these things. I wish he was around when I was diagnosed with MS.
My guess is meningioma
Crackberry attached to brain....
Fungus living off the sweet sounds her honey has been whispring in her ear.
I would guess a tumor that started outside the brain and was undetected and now has infilitrated inside. Doesn't look pretty that's for sure
It can't be anything good. Do you ever tell us the answers on these or do I always miss the answers?
looks like a mass pressing down on Dura mater hence an epidural hematoma... that's my answer and I am sticking with it!
....I'd rather get hit by a meteor....hey look it's a piece of haley's comet....better wash your ears before potato's start growning in them....earwig cocoon....bio chip implant growth after windows seven upgrade....a new apple intercrainial mac!...result
extra-axial, bright on diffusion. either t2 shine through or true restriction. differential would include meningioma, epidural hematoma or abscess and perhaps lipoma. gotta give us the ADC sanjay...
Something Congenital (e.g.stem cell origin)!! this very firm borders around it narrow down lot of possibilities .. its not heamatoma (for sure i guess) well brain origin tumor shouldn't make this firm border surrounding it or should it ? Metastasis is pos
It looks like something got into the ear and just spread and looks like some kind of tumor give us the answer please Dr.Gupta
er, ps--whatever it is looks like it's extradural and probably amenable to surgery if that contrast doesn't indicate an intractable hemorrhage risk. It's sort of meningioma-like but I think it's something else.
A really big, invasive cholesteatoma? Whatever it is grew slowly and isn't causing a lot of reaction in the brain tissue--the mass itself is full of contrast but there's no contrast uptake in the brain, + ventricles aren't flattened.
I bet in a calcified extradural hematoma.Luis Correia- Brasil
