Abstract

Ring lesions arc not infrequently noted at the operative site of intracranial tumors at varying intervals of time after surgery. We present a suture granuloma as an unusual cause of such a lesion. Two guidelines that help in the diagnosis and management of these lesions are discussed with emphasis on the value of the precontrast scan.
