A 69-year-old woman presented with clinical and imaging findings suspicious for gliomatosis cerebri, later confirmed by biopsy (moderately cellular, infiltrating glioma). Single voxel proton MR spectroscopy (TE 20 and TE 135) and spectroscopic imaging (TE 135) performed at admission showed normal choline, decreased N-acetyl, and elevated myo-inositol levels relative to creatine. The primary conclusion is that in suspected cases of gliomatosis cerebri, myo-inositol/creatine and myo-inositol/N… CONTINUE READING
