Abstract:

Many different intracranial lesions demonstrate dense calcifications and neuroimaging plays a vital role in characterization and diagnosis. The purpose of this educational exhibit is to offer a review of the uncommon histologic entity called calcified pseudoneoplasm of the neuroaxis CAPNON and to provide a differential diagnosis and several example cases of other calcified lesions of the neuroaxis to help the reader differentiate and distinguish CAPNON from more common neoplastic and non-neoplastic lesions.
