Leptomeningeal enhancement can be a neoplastic, infectious and primary neuroinflammatory disease. The brain is the body’s control unit, it is the vital part of the nervous system. The brain is an organ which serves as the center of the nervous system; it is located in the head and is close to the sensory organs such as vision. The shape and size of the brain vary from species to species composed of neurons and glial cells. Axons are present which help to transmit the signals by particular junctions known as synapses. Synapses are the key function of the brain which helps in cell to cell communication, there are nearly 100 trillion synapses. Axon is covered with a myelin sheath which is white in colour which makes the part of the brain filled up with light-coloured white matter and dark colour grey matter. The brain is the most complex organ in the body. Neurons are in the particular zone containing stem cells and migrate through the tissue to reach their specific locations.
