Abstract

MRI showed a cortically-based partially cystic and markedly enhancing mass in the uncus of the right temporal lobe in a patient with long standing refractory partial complex seizures. Histopathological examination revealed a pleomorphic xanthoastrocytoma, a rare, usually benign tumour thought to originate from subpial astrocytes.
