  • The authors report a rare case of a cystic metastasis in the midbrain that was successfully treated by brachytherapy following stereotactic biopsy and aspiration of the intratumoral cyst. Stereotactic aspiration of cystic lesions can lead to clinical improvement and brachytherapy prevents cyst recurrence. A 46-year-old man was referred to the authors' institution with a 2-month history of a left hemisensory disturbance and a 1-month history of progressive hemiparesis.
