Figure 5 (a-g): Tuberculous abscess in the left parasagittal region of a 20-year-old woman. A well-defi ned hyperintense lesion with a hypointense wall is seen in a T2W image (a). A T1W image shows a hypo- to isointense lesion with a hyperintense wall. A magnetization transfer (MT) T1W image (c) shows more conspicuity of the T2 hypointense wall as compared with the T1W image. A postcontrast MT T1W image (d) shows rim enhancement A diffusion-weighted image (e) shows homogeneous hyperintensity in the cavity with low ADC on the ADC map (f). Magnetic resonance imaging spectroscopy (G) from the center of the lesion with a voxel size of 1.2 ml shows a predominant lipid peak (Lip, 1.3 ppm)
