Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


This report portrays an unusual presentation of a dysembryoplastic neuroepithelial tumor characterized by a chronic, enlarging, heterogeneously enhancing organizing hematoma. Differential diagnoses included the malignant transformation of a low-grade glioma, radiation necrosis, and radiation-induced cavernoma. A dysembryoplastic neuroepithelial tumor may have atypical characteristics and behavior, so continued follow-up with serial imaging is recommended.
