Figure 1: Magnetic resonance imaging showing T1 hypointense (a), T2, and fluid-attenuated-inversion-recovery (FLAIR) heterogeneously hyperintense (b and c), heterogeneously contrast-enhancing (d) mass in the cerebellar pontine cistern with intratumoral hemorrhage as evidence by susceptibility-weighted image (SWI) blooming (e). No evidence of diffusion restriction noted. The lesion was noted to cause mass effect seen in the form of buckling of the adjacent left cerebellar hemisphere, brainstem, and compression of the fourth ventricle. Postoperative computer tomography showing complete excision of the tumor (f)
