  • Mesencephalic Neoplasm

    Figure 1: Comparative sagittal T2 imaging performed 2 years apart in demonstrating sagging of the brainstem with elongation of the midbrain and marked flattening of the pons[academic.oup.com] The corresponding sagittal T1 ( b ) image shows a mild improvement in the degree of brainstem sagging with less marked flattening of the pons compared with previous imaging[academic.oup.com] SIH characteristically causes ‘sagging’ of the brainstem with flattening of the pons, but in the absence of other signs, this anatomical distortion may be overlooked or misinterpreted[academic.oup.com]

  • Essential Intracranial Hypotension

    Brain MRI showed an important meningeal enhancement with bilateral subdural hematomas, caudal descent of the tonsils and flattened pons against the clivus.[omicsonline.org] Further features as pons flattening against the clivus, caudal displacement of the cerebellar tonsils and the diencephalon and downward traction and distorsion of cranial[omicsonline.org] Other signs including decreased dimension of the suprasellar cistern, bowing of optic chiasma, flattening of the pons against the clivus and effacement of the perimesencephalic[omicsonline.org]
