     Pediatric Radiology CasesMost likely etiology:

    neoplastic  

     
     Pediatric Radiology CasesHistory:

    The MRI was done because of seizures. Proof of various cutaneous giant cell naevi in the region of the dorsum.  

     
     Pediatric Radiology CasesPathomorphology or Pathophysiology of this disease :

    Localized leptomeningeal naevus infestation of intracranial or intraspinal structures. Neurologically symptomatic and asymptomatic forms are differentiated. Serious neurological symptoms can be seen depending on the localization (i.e. CSF circulatory disfunction, compression of the spinal cord).  

     
     Pediatric Radiology CasesRadiological findings:


    MRI 1 <- view MRI 1

    MRI 1: Transversal (T1 - native)






    MRI 2 <- view MRI 2

    MRI 2: Transversal (T1 - native)

    Depending on the melanin content of the lesions, the lesions can be seen even in the T1 weighted image as hyperintensive lesions. After contrast application, one may see enchancement (subtraction images are recommended). In the T2 weighted series, there are different characteristics of the tumors, depending on the extent of the regressive changes.




     

     
     Pediatric Radiology CasesDiagnosis confirmation:

    Total constellation (Consens)  

     
     Pediatric Radiology CasesWhich DD would be also possible with the radiological findings:

    Melanoma metastases. Hemorrhaging metastases, or rather tumors of other origin.  

     
     Pediatric Radiology CasesCourse / Prognosis / Frequency / Other :

    The extent of the clinical symptoms and prognosis is dependent on the localization in the CNS. A malignant change is pricipally possible.
