Figure 2 (A-H): Axial gradient-echo MRIs from inferior to superior (A-D) shows superficial siderosis around the cerebellar folia and brainstem. Sagittal T2W (E) and axial T2W (F) spine MRIs show a ventral fluid collection extending from C2-D9 (thick black arrows). Also noted is a thin rim of T2 hypointensity around the surface of the cord (thin white arrows) due to superficial siderosis. Sagittal immediate dynamic CT myelogram (G) shows leakage of contrast into the ventral collection at T1-T2 level (notched white arrow). Axial immediate dynamic CT myelogram (H) shows a lucent line in the ventral fluid collection, which may represent a fibrous band (thin white arrow). At surgery, a connection between the ventral collection and the main dural cavity was identified on the right at the T1-T2 level. Also identified were multiple abnormal blood vessels near the right nerve root sleeve, one of which was an acute bleeder and was the potential source of bleeding responsible for the superficial siderosis
