Abstract

Such cases illustrate the importance of considering a demyelinating lesion in the differential diagnosis of a mass lesion. The difficulties encountered in establishing the correct diagnosis of inflammatory disease are related to the variations in the radiologic appearance, which require exclusion of gliomas or other brain tumors by surgical biopsy before the therapeutic strategy can be selected.
