Magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) is a new, noninvasive method of diagnosing a lesion in cases where magnetic resonance (MR) imaging cannot reliably differentiate between two or more possible aetiologies. This case report describes a 20-year-old pregnant woman who developed sudden onset of left-sided hemiparesis. MR imaging of the brain revealed an infarct of the right middle cerebral artery and a suprasellar mass. The endocrine workup was normal. As she was 20 weeks pregnant, the option of… CONTINUE READING
