Angiocentric glioma-like tumor of the midbrain.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Angiocentric glioma, a rare brain neoplasm with features of ependymal differentiation, has only recently been recognized as a distinct clinicopathological entity. To date, all reported cases have involved tumors in the cerebral hemispheres, and the majority have presented with seizures. The authors report the case of a 5-year-old girl who presented with several cranial neuropathies and mild gait disturbance. An exophytic neoplasm arising from the posterior midbrain and causing obstructive hydrocephalus was identified, and surgical resection revealed a neoplasm with features of angiocentric glioma.
