Abstract

A 71-year-old woman had arachnoid granulations found in the straight and transverse sinuses on computerized tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The arachnoid granulations appeared as low-density masses on CT. They gave low signals on T1-weighted MR images and high signals on T2- weighted images. Arachnoid granulations are usually of no clinical significance. They have characteristic CT and MRI manifestations and should not be mistaken for sinus thrombosis or intrasinus tumors.
