Neuroradiology Unknown Videos – Case 1

This unknown case is a 58 year-old presenting with confusion and transient weakness. The CT and MR show a large mass in the left frontal lobe as well as an additional mass in the posterior right frontal lobe.

This will be part of an unknown case series that will be continuously updated. See the full playlist below:
