Abstract

Gangliogliomas are considered rare tumors which account for 0.4-0.9% of intracranial neoplasms. The peak of its incidence occurs between 10 and 20 years of age. These tumors are composed of glial and ganglion cells and they are relatively low grade neoplasms associated with good prognosis. We report a rare case of intracranial ganglioglioma in a 10 year old boy who underwent surgery and adjuvant radiotherapy.
