Spontaneous regression of an intracranial lesion, as seen in sequential CT or MRI images, does not necessarily indicate a self-limiting process such as trauma or vascular disease. This report describes two cases of intracranial enhancing lesions which, on follow-up, showed complete resolution of the changes seen on MRI, without any treatment other than the administration of corticosteroid for a short period. We review several reports of "disappearing CT lesions", and discuss the possible mechanism of disappearance of intracranial lesions.
Key Words: Intracranial lesion; Spontaneous regression; Corticosteroid
