Case Study
We describe three patients with high grade supratentorial gliomas who were operated and later presented with cerebellar mass lesions on the opposite side. Supratentorial infarct with crossed cerebellar atrophy is a well-known entity called crossed cerebellar diaschisis. We hypothesize that sup ratentorial high grade tumours might also spread to the opposite cerebellum through crossed cerebrocerebellar fiber tracts similar to crossed cerebellar diaschisis.

    Neurenteric cyst (NC) is a benign epithelial cyst (BEC) of endodermal origin that mostly occurs in the spinal subdural space or posterior cranial fossa. A 28-year-old male presented with a left frontal lobe NC associated with spontaneous repetitive intracystic hemorrhage, which was initially...

    Hypothalamic glioma account for 10-15% of supratentorial tumors in children. They usually present earlier (first 5 years of age) than craniopharyngioma. Hypothalamic glioma poses a diagnostic dilemma with craniopharyngioma and other hypothalamic region tumors, when they present with atypical...
