A case of frontal hypertrophic cranial pachymeningitis was presented with positron emission tomography (PET) using (11C-methyl)-L-methionine (11C-Met). A 55-year-old male developed right hemiparesis after generalized tonic convulsion one month prior to admission. MR images revealed patchy enhancement extending from the dura mater to the cerebral parenchyma surrounding high T2-weighted signal in the left frontal region. Left carotid angiogram showed atresia of the rostral superior sagittal sinus… CONTINUE READING
