A 22years old male presented with features of delayed puberty & incomplete sexual development.On clinical examination there was hypogonadism. Hormonal assays revealed very low concentrations of testosterone, however the levels of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) was not raised. MRI was advised to evaluate for clinical suspision of central Pituitary as the cause for this condition. Below are the noncontrast coronal T2 & T1 SPGR MRI images through the region of frontal lobes.
