Click 20 day old male with lipid infusion through malpositioned central venous catheter. Axial T1W MRI images (TR=416.66, TE=16, 1.5T, SL=4mm) without intravenous contrast through the brain in a 20 day old male with malpositioned central venous catheter demonstrate hydrocephalus. There is increased T1 signal material layering posteriorly in the lateral ventricles as well as within the subarachnoid/subdural space surrounding the cerebellum.

Click 20 day old male with lipid infusion through malpositioned central venous catheter. Axial T2W FLAIR MRI images (TR=8002, TE=128.66, 1.5T, SL=4mm) without intravenous contrast through the brain in a 20 day old male with malpositioned central venous catheter demonstrate hydrocephalus. There is material with abnormally decreased T2 signal layering in the dependent portions of lateral ventricles as well as hyperintense signal material within the subarachnoid/subdural space surrounding the cerebellum.

Click 20 day old male with lipid infusion through malpositioned central venous catheter. Sagittal post contrast T1W MRI images of the spine (TR=400, TE=11, 1.5T, SL=3mm) with fat saturation after injecting 0.35mL of magnevist (gadopentetate dimeglumine) in a 20 day old male with malpositioned central venous catheter demonstrate a prominent collection of low signal in the posterior epidural space along the majority of the spine compatible with lipid and fluid. The thecal sac is effaced in the cervical to upper thoracic spine and there is mass effect on the spinal cord. Note is made of an enhancing epidural vein.

Click 20 day old male with lipid infusion through malpositioned central venous catheter. Sagittal post contrast T2W MRI images of the spine (TR=2616.66, TE=96.45, 1.5T, SL=3mm) after injecting 0.35mL of magnevist (gadopentetate dimeglumine) in a 20 day old male with malpositioned central venous catheter demonstrate a prominent collection of high T2 weighted signal in the posterior epidural space along the majority of the spine compatible with lipid and fluid. The thecal sac is effaced in the cervical to upper thoracic spine and there is mass effect on the spinal cord.
