Supratentorial and spinal cord hemangioblastomas: gadolinium enhanced MR appearance with pathologic correlation

J Comput Assist Tomogr. Nov-Dec 1989;13(6):1048-51. doi: 10.1097/00004728-198911000-00018.


A case is presented that illustrates the magnetic resonance appearance of supratentorial hemangioblastomas both prior to and following intravenous administration of gadolinium-diethylenetriamine pentaacetic acid (Gd-DTPA). Spinal cord hemangioblastomas were also present and were visualized only after Gd-DTPA administration. Pathological verification of the multiple tumoral lesions was obtained.
