Axial and coronal T2 weighted images demonstrate a large CSF space in the right
parietal region with a cleft extending toward the adjacent ventricle. Abnormal thickened
gray matter is seen lining this cleft, best demonstrated on the left axial image.
Also noted is abnormal, thickened, gray matter in the left frontal and parietal regions.
The brain parenchyma lining the cleft follows the signal intensity of cortical
gray matter and does not enhance.
