Case contributed by Dr Vic Venu

Patient Data

Gender: Female

Nonenhancing mass involving the overlying right frontal cortex with minor positive mass effect. 

Case Discussion

This tumor was biopsied and shown to be an oligodendroglioma.

Note: This case predates the recent (2016) revision WHO classification of CNS tumors, and thus molecular markers (IDH mutation and 1p19q co-deletion) are not available. As such, this tumor would now be classified as an oligodendroglioma NOS.
