Magnetic resonance imaging revealed that thickening of the bilateral forehead, right superior temporal occipital bone and bilateral upper orbital bone. There were multiple visible flaps and nodules along with slightly longer T1 (a), slightly longer T2 (b), and other FLAIR (c) signals in these areas of bone thickening. An enhanced scan revealed slightly irregular enhancement (d, e, f). Significantly enhanced nodules could be observed on the right side of the temporal and temporal occipital meninges. The largest nodule was at the right side of the temporal lobe, and pressure spread to the adjacent brain parenchyma, around pressure exist the long T1 long T2 edema signal. There was slight compression of the adjacent brain parenchyma and ventricle
