Noonan syndrome (NS) is an autosomal dominant disease caused by aberrant up-regulated signaling through RAS GTPase. It is characterized by facial dysmorphisms, short stature, congenital heart defects, malformations of rib cage bones, bleeding problems, learning difficulties, or mild intellectual disability. Additional intracranial findings in NS patients include tumors, midline anomalies, and malformations of cortical development. In this report, we present the case of a young female patient, with a known diagnosis of Noonan syndrome that in complete well being developed two brain lesions, in the right nucleus pallidus and in the left cerebellar hemisphere respectively, whose location and signal on MRI looked similar to neurofibromatosis type 1 unidentified bright objects (UBOs), and whose spectroscopic characteristics excluded neoplasms.

Abstract

Noonan syndrome (NS) is an autosomal dominant disease caused by aberrant up-regulated signaling through RAS GTPase. It is characterized by facial dysmorphisms, short stature, congenital heart defects, malformations of rib cage bones, bleeding problems, learning difficulties, or mild intellectual disability. Additional intracranial findings in NS patients include tumors, midline anomalies, and malformations of cortical development. In this report, we present the case of a young female patient, with a known diagnosis of Noonan syndrome that in complete well being developed two brain lesions, in the right nucleus pallidus and in the left cerebellar hemisphere respectively, whose location and signal on MRI looked similar to neurofibromatosis type 1 unidentified bright objects (UBOs), and whose spectroscopic characteristics excluded neoplasms.
