Brainstem glioma in childhood (1)

These images demonstrate a heterogenous signal and minimally enhancing mass within the cerebellar vermis consistent with a pilocytic astrocytoma. This mass was initially found in a young female at the age of 8 years, but subtle growth at age 16 (as shown here) resulted in resection of the mass. (A) Axial T2, (B) Flair, (C) T1 precontrast, and (D) T1 postcontrast images show the extent of the mass. (Contributed by Dr. Diana Gomez-Hassan.)
