Cerebellar hemangioblastoma

Cerebellar hemangioblastoma on MR, von Hippel Lindau syndrome. Well seen on axial T2- and sagittal post-contrast T1-weighted scans is a cystic cerebellar lesion with an enhancing mural nodule. This lesion is also illustrated on CT in an accompanying figure. A solid enhancing nodule (along the periphery of the cyst) would be the most characteristic imaging appearance, as opposed to the more ring like enhancement seen in this instance.
