Man's 'Missing' Brain Was Actually a Large Air Pocket Inside His Head
By Rachael Rettner, Senior Writer | March 9, 2018 11:15am ET
 
A man in Northern Ireland had a highly uncommon cause for his falls: He had a pocket of air inside his skull, called a pneumatocele. Above, an MRI of the man's brain, showing the 3.5-inch (9 centimeters) air pocket in his right frontal lobe.
 

Falls are a common problem among older adults, but for one 84-year-old man in Northern Ireland, a brain scan revealed a highly uncommon cause for his falls: A part of his brain appeared to be missing.

The stunning scan revealed a large, black space behind his forehead, where the front of his brain should have been.

I don't think I'd have had the surgery, either.
I will NOT comply.
