Primary differential diagnoses include meningoangiomatosis and neurocutaneous melanosis. Meningoangiomatosis is a rare, benign disease characterized by leptomeningeal calcifications and hamartomatous proliferation of meningeal cells along the leptomeninges and cortex. In neurocutaneous melanosis, on the other hand, multiple cutaneous nevi will be seen. Imaging reveals melanin deposits within the parenchyma and leptomeninges; these deposits appear similar to those in SS.
