This free case-based activity includes a crowd-sourced discussion of a 41-year-old woman who developed new onset right focal seizures and aphasia in 2004. MRI revealed a non-enhancing left parietal mass that was followed after seizures were controlled with an anti-epileptic. In 2013, she developed increased seizure frequency and MRI showed slow progression of the non-enhancing left parietal mass and now a faint hint of enhancement could be seen.
