Cerebral demyelinating disease is a neurological condition and cerebral lesions caused by demyelinating disease may simulate cerebral tumours. This is a case report of an 83 year old patient with prograssiverly worsening neurological symptoms and an MRI scans howing a lesion resembling a malignant glioma. THis historical examination of this lesion confirmed a demyelinating pseudotumour. A review of the literature revealed conflicting findings on the radiological and histological features of this lesion. It is important that careful analysis of these investigations be carried out before a definite diagnosis of a demyelinating pseudotumour is made in order to ensure appropriate patient management.
