A pregnant woman was referred for foetal MRI at 32 gestational weeks (GW) after a temporal mass was detected on ultrasound and a haemorrhage was suspected. The pregnancy had been followed appropriately, and there was no relevant personal or family history. The parents decided to carry the pregnancy to term, and the infant was re-imaged in the neonatal period.
