MARTINS, Michele Carneiro Brito et al. Magnetic resonance imaging findings of intracranial gossypiboma: a case report and literature review. Radiol Bras [online]. 2009, vol.42, n.6, pp.407-409. ISSN 1678-7099.

Many reports in the literature have described findings of gossypibomas at conventional radiography and computed tomography. However, magnetic resonance imaging findings are still to be completely known. The purpose of the present study was to describe imaging findings of gossypibomas in a patient with previous history of brain surgery, presenting fever and mental confusion.
