Figure 1: Brain MRI:T2 weighted axial image shows a hyperintense lesion in the right posterior temporal region with edema (arrows)

Figure 2A: Precontrast T1 weighted axial image shows a lesion of mild hyperintensity with surrounding hypointense edema in the right posterior temporal region (arrow)

Figure 2B: Corresponding postcontrast T1 weighted axial image demonstrates rim enhancement of the lesion (red arrow). Also note the mild posterior enhancement in the left globe representing the enhancing retina (yellow arrow)

Figure 3A: Fundus photo of the left eye: Depicting subretinal mass at the posterior pole on the initial eye examination.

Figure 3B: Fundus photo of the left eye: Showing the marked increase in size of the subretinal mass 5 days later.
