J Comput Assist Tomogr. Jul-Aug 1988;12(4):698-701. doi: 10.1097/00004728-198807000-00043.


Gliomatosis cerebri, a rare diffusely infiltrating astrocytoma, was discovered on the postmortem examination of a 22-year-old woman with a 13 year history of seizures. Computed tomography of the brain revealed bifrontal white matter low density changes that were most consistent with a demyelinating or dysmyelinating disorder.
