  • Figure 1
    Non-contrast axial CT of the brain
     

    Axial CT through the brain stem showing a well demarcated low attenuation lesion in the central pons, consistent with demyelination. There is generalised cerebral and cerebellar atrophy

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Non-contrast axial CT of the brain;

    Axial CT of the brain at the level of the brainstem showing a low attenuation lesion in the central pons, consistent with demyelination

     
    Area of Interest: unknown; Imaging Technique: Non-contrast axial CT of the brain;

    Axial CT of brain showing a well demarcated mesenchepahalic low density lesion consistent with demyelination.
