Author information

Division of Neurosurgery, Regina Elena Cancer Institute, Rome, Italy.


Multiple sclerosis rarely may present as a focal cerebral mass with clinical features and computed tomographic scan appearances of cerebral tumor. Distinguishing between these can be difficult or impossible. We report a case of a multiple sclerosis plaque involving the parietal lobe with mass effect; clinical and radiological features had led to a diagnosis of cerebral tumor.
