1 : Axial CT shows hyperdense intra axial
collection in the right parietal lobe with small hypodensities within this collection suggestive of actively bleeding intra cerebral hemorrhage.
Intra axial location of the SOL ruled out possibility of arachnoid cyst.
2: [A] MRI TiW axial [B] MRI TiW sagittal [C] CEMRI TiW axial [D] MRI T2W axial scan showing an intra axial well defined cystic SOL displaying CSF signal intensity with no post contrast enhancement and no perifocal edema noted in right middle cerebral artery territory measuring approximately 6.9*3.8 cm causing mass effect in the form of midline shift to left and compression of right lateral ventricles.
