Multiple brain metastases

There can be little doubt of the diagnosis in Figure 
These metastatic deposits are
from a primary melanoma and demonstrate
solid growths with surrounding oedema.
The two hemispheres of the cerebrum have
completely different appearances and the
lack of symmetry is easy to identify.
Melanoma commonly metastasises to the
brain, and approximately 40–60% of melanoma
patients will present with brain metastases.
Haemorrhage is also a distinctive appearance
on CT.
