Once regarded as a rare occurrence, it has been recently suggested that its incidence is in fact very much higher than previously thought, and that it is(More)
In this report seven cases of diffusely altered signal intensity of the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) at magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are described. The abnormalities resemble those of mucoid degeneration of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and are associated with it in six cases.

Cavernous angiomas (cavernomas) of the cavernous sinus are uncommon, with only scattered reports in literature. Unlike their parenchymatous counterparts, they are intensely enhancing para-sellar masses, iso/hypointense in T1- and hyperintense in T2-weighted images. Differential diagnosis with para-sellar meningiomas and schwannomas can be difficult. We(More)
