Dysembryoplastic neuroepithelial tumour and cerebellar atrophy: case report.

Author information

Department of Radiology, University of Ioannina Medical School, Greece.


Dysembryoplastic neuroepithelial tumours (DNET) are mainly benign cortical lesions. DNET in the caudate nucleus, thalamus, hypothalamus, pons and cerebellar hemispheres has also been reported. We describe a fronto-temporo-parietal DNET extending to the ipsilateral thalamus and internal capsule, associated with cerebellar lobe atrophy. Involvement of the internal capsule and complication of DNET with cerebellar atrophy have not been reported previously. We emphasise the importance of early diagnosis and treatment of this rare condition.
