MRI can exclude other lesions causing obstruction of CSF flow through the aqueduct, such as lesions in the posterior third ventricle or posterior cranial fossa. Congenital hydrocephalus also occurs in association with Chiari I, Chiari II, and Dandy-Walker malformations. Macrocephaly from inherited metabolic disorders (Alexander disease, Canavan disease, megalencephalic leukodystrophy with subcortical cysts) Alexander disease MRI: Bilateral symmetric zones of increased signal on T2-weighted imaging (T2WI) and FLAIR in the frontal lobes extending into the temporal and parietal lobes, including the external and extreme capsules, anterior limbs of the internal capsules, subcortical arcuate fibers, midbrain and medulla, and dentate nuclei of the cerebellum.
Can be large lesions (± necrosis and/or hemorrhage). MRI: Invasive lesions in the nasopharynx (lateral wall/ fossa of Rosenmüller, and posterior upper wall); ± intracranial extension via bone destruction or perineural spread; intermediate signal on T1-weighted imaging, intermediate-slightly high signal on T2weighted imaging; often shows gadolinium contrast enhancement. Can be large lesions (± necrosis and/or hemorrhage). Adenoid cystic carcinoma CT: Tumors have intermediate attenuation and variable mild, moderate, or prominent contrast enhancement.
CT: Circumscribed, lobulated, or ovoid radiolucent defect in the calvarium. 29) Circumscribed ovoid structures within dural venous sinuses, with low signal on T1-weighted imaging and FLAIR, high signal on T2-weighted imaging, and no gadolinium contrast enhancement, ± erosion of adjacent inner table of skull. Extension of arachnoid membrane into dural venous sinuses. Normal CSF pulsations can result in erosion of adjacent bone. 30) MRI: Nodular or multinodular regions of gray matter heterotopia involving all or part of a cerebral hemisphere, with associated enlargement of the ipsilateral lateral ventricle and hemisphere.
