Abstract

IVL is characterized by a propensity for intravascular tumor cell proliferation. Premortem diagnosis of IVL is difficult because of its nonspecific clinical, laboratory, and imaging manifestations. This study examined cerebral MR imaging patterns of IVL and their changes with and without chemotherapy. Nine of 11 patients studied presented with abnormal findings. We define 5 patterns of abnormal MR imaging findings: 1) infarctlike lesions, 2) nonspecific white matter lesions, 3) meningeal enhancement, 4) masslike lesions, and 5) hyperintense lesions in the pons on T2WI. Seven patients presented with only 1 pattern, while 2 patients presented with multiple patterns. Lesions in 7 treated patients responded to chemotherapy. Pathologic specimens revealed intravascular tumor cell infiltration with associated infarctions, necrosis, congestion, demyelination, vasculitis, and tumor cell extravasation. We conclude that MR imaging patterns can be possible manifestations of intravascular-dominant infiltration by tumor cells with associated occlusion or inflammation, depending on the level of affected vessels.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 4. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 27 August 2019.
All research outputs
#4,021,610
of 13,560,201 outputs
Outputs from American Journal of Neuroradiology
#1,130
of 3,413 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#34,731
of 119,788 outputs
Outputs of similar age from American Journal of Neuroradiology
#7
of 34 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,560,201 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 70th percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 3,413 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.6. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 66% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 119,788 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 70% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 34 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 79% of its contemporaries.
