Abstract: We report a case of a young female patient with a rare and recently described form of brain tumor. This patient had a history of headache, hemiparesis and motor simple partial seizures. Her investigation revealed a brain tumor involving the left frontal and parietal lobes. The radiological images showed a cystic mass with multiple nodular masses and a rim of contrast enhancement extending from the right parietal cortex to the ipsilateral ventricle and corpus callosum. The patient underwent gross resection of the lesion and the histological analysis of the surgical specimen revealed a pseudopapillary structure formed by delicate vessels intermixed with a fibrillary pattern and bordered by intense astrocytic reaction with Rosenthal fibers. These features correspond to the recently described mixed neuronal-glial neoplasm, the papillary glioneuronal tumor. The patient has been followed for five years since the surgical treatment, without evidence of tumor recurrence, confirming the indolent behavior of this type of tumor.
