Abstract

Mycosis fungoides is a malignant, cutaneous lymphoma of T-helper (TH or CD4+) cells. At presentation, the disease is usually limited. To the skin, with lesions that resemble eczema or Psoriasis. Neurologic involvement as uncommon. This case demonstrates the conventional MRI and dynamic contrast enhanced perfusion MRI findings in intracerebral mycosis fungoides. T1-weighted spin echo imaging demonstrated a lesion with slightly decreased signal within the body of the corpus callosum. The lesion was isointense with grey matter on axial T2-weighted imaging. Following administration of contrast, there was patchy heterogeneous enhancement. Multiple relative cerebral blood volume rCBV was 0.30 with the maximum rCBV being 1.61. The mean rCBV was 0.81 ± 0.49 (average of 10 measurements and standard deviation).
