  Abstract :

OBJECTIVE: To study the MRI features of various etiologies presenting as ring enhancing lesions in the brain with the help of MR spectroscopy. METHODOLOGY: The study was conducted on 45 patients over the period of 2 years, from Aug 2017 to Sep 2019 in the Department Radio-diagnosis of Dr Vasantrao Pawar Medical College, Nasik. RESULTS: Of the 45 patients with ring enhancing lesions who were evaluated, tuberculomas (40%) turned out to be the most common pathology causing the ring enhancing lesions followed by NCC (31 %), Abscesses (9%), metastasis (13%), primary brain tumour (2%) and Toxoplasmosis (4%). CONCLUSION: MRI is the most sensitive diagnostic tool in the characterization of intracranial ring enhancing lesions. MRI with MR spectroscopy can help in the differentiation on different etiologies presenting as Ring Enhancing leisons.
