Click 19 year old male with ruptured intracranial dermoid cyst. Axial MRI (TR 400, TE 14, 5 mm slice thickness, FOV 24 X 24 cm, 1.5 Tesla magnet) T1 weighted images demonstrate a suprasellar mass of high T1 signal intensity, which causes widening of the interpeduncular cistern and partially encases the right Internal Carotid Artery (ICA). Scattered droplets of similar signal characteristics are noted in the subarachnoid space.

Click 19 year old male with ruptured intracranial dermoid cyst. Coronal MRI (TR 446, TE 13, 3 mm slice thickness, FOV 18 X 18 cm, 1.5 Tesla magnet) T1 weighted image demonstrate suprasellar mass of high T1 signal. Scattered fat droplets are also seen in the subarachnoid space.

Click 19 year old male with ruptured intracranial dermoid cyst. Sagittal MRI (TR 453, TE 12, 5 mm slice thickness, FO V 26 X 26 cm, 1.5 Tesla magnet) T1 weighted images demonstrate a suprasellar mass of high T1 signal and scattered droplets throughout the subarachnoid space of similar signal characteristics.

Click 19 year old male with ruptured intracranial dermoid cyst. Axial MRI (5 mm slice thickness, 1.5 Tesla magnet) T2 weighted (TR 4790, TE 113) images demonstrate a suprasellar mass of high T2 signal intensity, which causes widening of the interpeduncular cistern.

Click 19 year old male with ruptured intracranial dermoid cyst. Axial MRI (5 mm slice thickness, 1.5 Tesla magnet) T2 FLAIR (TR 8480, TE 98) images demonstrate a suprasellar mass of high T2 signal intensity, which causes widening of the interpeduncular cistern..

Click 19 year old male with ruptured intracranial dermoid cyst. Diffusion-weighted imaging (1.5 Tesla magnet) demonstrates a suprasellar mass with hyperintense signal on DWI, while the Apparent Diffusion Coefficient (ADC) of the mass is noted to be isointense with brain parenchyma.
