- Gangliogliomas are rare tumors of the central
nervous system(1-1.5% of all primary brain tumors).
They can occur anywhere in the central nervous system
but are most commonly located in the temporal
lobe(75%) and are mainly found in children. A 50-yearold male presented with features of headache,dizziness
and altered behaviour. plain CT images shows large
intra-axial predominantly cystic lesion with eccentric
hyperdense solid component without calcification.
Contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging
(CEMRI) of the brain showed well defined intense and
heterogenously enhancing solid and cystic mass lesion in
the left high frontal region with mass effect and midline
We report a case of ganglioglioma in 50 years old
male in the left frontal lobe (10%),which is rare location
which was diagnosed by CT, CEMRI and confirmed at
Ganglioglioma, frontal lobe, cortical based tumor.
