Abstract.

The role of MRI in the evaluation of fetal abnormalities is still under evaluation. We describe a case of an intracranial mass that was initially identified by prenatal ultrasound and was further evaluated by MRI. Ultimately, the findings were most consistent with hematoma secondary to an underlying dural malformation with spontaneous involution. The advantages of fetal MRI in the assessment and management of this abnormality will be discussed.
