Abstract

We report a case of a 6-year-old girl with a ganglioglioma in the pineal region presenting with a rare clinical picture of premature thelarche. Intracranial gangliogliomas are rare, especially in the pineal region. Their character, origin, treatment, and prognosis remain controversial. The pathophysiology of precocious puberty associated with pineal ganglioglioma is discussed.
