A case of multicentric glioma of cerebellum and brain

Zentralbl Neurochir. 1988;49(2):124-7.


A case of true multicentric glioma which occurred in a 52-year-old female is presented. Two lesions one occurring six months after the other were localized below and above the tentorium, respectively. Histological examination showed the same pattern of anaplastic astrocytoma in both foci. The possibility of cerebellar tumor metastasizing to cerebral hemisphere is discussed and deemed as unlike in this particular case.
