MR Imaging and Histopathologic Findings of A Case of Cerebral Ganglioneurocytoma

By Ji Hoon Shin, Ho Kyu Lee, Jung-Kyo Lee, Shin Kwang Khang, Choong Gon Choi and Dae Chul Suh


We report a case of ganglioneurocytoma manifesting as a complex partial seizure in a young adult male. MR images depicted a well-marginated cystic mass with a heterogeneous solid portion abutting the dura in the parietal lobe. The solid portion showed minimal heterogeneous enhancement, and pressure erosion of the overlying calvarium had occurred. Following gross total resection, the clinical outcome was satisfactory, with no further seizures, and during the five-year follow-up period, the tumor did not recur
