Abstract

Papillary tumour of the pineal region (PTPR) is a relatively new and rare pathological entity, which appears to run a spectrum of clinical courses. We add another case with detailed description of the clinical course documented with serial imaging over the total of 7 years. In accordance with previous reports we recommend total surgical resection with subsequent focal radiotherapy. Clinical and radiological follow up of the entire cerebrospinal axis is mandatory.
