Abstract

A 67-year-old woman had intractable epilepsy and developed a progressive dementia with upper motor neuron signs over the last 6 years. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed multiple areas of large calcified cysts, which increased in number and size over the last 3 years. Discussion includes the appearance of these lesions radiologically and pathologically, as well as their differential diagnosis and clinical significance, focusing on the increasing detection of these lesions with current imaging techniques.
