Primitive supratentorial neuroectodermal tumor in an adult.J Clin Neurosci. 2005 May; 12(4):492-5.JC
We report the case of a 32-year-old female with a diagnosis of supratentorial tumour. Total removal of the tumour was achieved in a two-stage procedure. Histopathology revealed a primitive neuroectodermal tumour (PNET), an unusual and highly malignant, mainly infratentorial tumour of childhood that is uncommonly described in the supratentorial compartment of adults. We review the literature and describe the existing knowledge of these tumours.
