Figure 1: MRI scan of the brain demonstrated small ill defined lesion at left side of hypothalamus (tuber cinereum) about 1.23 x 1.21 x 0.87 cm (white arrow),
which had slightly decreased signal intensity in T1W (A, axial view), and slightly increased signal intensity in T2W (B, axial; C, coronal view) and FLAIR (D) without definite enhancement (E, axial; F, coronal view).
