Fibro-osseous lesions involving the brain: MRI

Neuroradiology. 1999 Jan;41(1):18-21. doi: 10.1007/s002340050697.


We present the MRI findings in two patients with "fibro-osseous lesions" involving the central nervous system. A left temporal lobe mass was present in one patient and an extra-axial mass at the skull base in the other. In both cases, calcification was present, with low signal intensity on T1- and T2-weighted images.
