Abstract

We present the MRI findings of delayed brain damage in a patient who underwent radiotherapy after resection of an oligo-astrocytoma. The lesions appeared years later within brain tissue that was included in radiation fields. High-field 3 Tesla MR investigation gave us the possibility to appreciate the different aspects of the vasculopathy induced by irradiation. A literature review allowed us to hypothesize the correlations between imaging and pathological findings.
