13 - Hypothalamic - optic - chiasmatic glioma

Ahmet Mesrur Halefoğlu, Zeki Karpat

Optic pathway and hypothalamic gliomas are account for 25 to 30 % of pediatric suprasellar neoplasms. The ma jority of these tumors are diagnosed in the first decade and two-thirds in the first 5 years of life. These tumors may become quite large prior to diagnosis. We have presented a huge mass involving both the left optic nerve and the suprasellar region which showed imaging characteristics of typical of these tumors on magnetic resonance. Following biopsy and partial resection of the tumor, histopathologic examination revealed optic - hypothalamic glioma as the primary diagnosis.

Keywords: Hypothalamus, Brain neoplasms, Magnetic resonance imaging.
