Brain (Cerebral) Aneurysm Community
Diagnosis from MRI
About This Community:

WELCOME TO ANEURYSM THE COMMUNITY: This Patient-To-Patient Community is for discussions relating to Brain Aneurysms which is a weak or thin spot on a blood vessel in the brain that balloons out and fills with blood. The bulging aneurysm can put pressure on a nerve or surrounding brain tissue. It may also leak or rupture, spilling blood into the surrounding tissue (called a hemorrhage). Some cerebral aneurysms, particularly those that are very small, do not bleed or cause other problems. Cerebral aneurysms can occur anywhere in the brain, but most are located along a loop of arteries that run between the underside of the brain and the base of the skull.

Diagnosis from MRI

What does this diagnosis mean? Findings: There is no acute infarct or intracranial hemorrhage. There
is a low T1, isointense T2 extra-axial mass in the posterior right
frontal region near the vertex with homogeneous enhancement and
suspected dural attachment consistent with a meningioma. This lesion
appears to exert some mild mass effect on the adjacent precentral
gyrus. No other intra or extra-axial mass lesions are identified.
There is no evidence for cortical migration abnormality. The
ventricles, cortical sulci, and basal cisterns are symmetric and
appropriate in size. The major intracranial flow-voids are preserved.
The pituitary and suprasellar region, and brainstem and posterior
fossa are normal in appearance. The visualized orbits, paranasal
sinuses, and mastoid air cells are normal curves. Normal bone marrow
signal.
