      <Abstract>Evaluation of periventricular lesions of the brain on magnetic resonance imaging is always difficult because the cause of these lesions varies considerably. the correct analysis of these lesions , especially the exact location, the characteristics of the signal on different sequences, the enhancement pattern makes it possible to identify a correct cause of these lesions. In this article we will identify a various common and a few uncommon diseases presenting as peri-ventricular white matter lesions in which imaging findings can allow. This is a literature review of peri-ventricular lesions of brain seen in adults with illustrating figures from radiology department at Hassan IId University hospital in Fez, Morocco.</Abstract>
