Abstract

Gliomatosis cerebri is a rare condition characterized by diffuse overgrowth of a large portion of the brain by the glial cells, with different differentiation. A surgically-proven case of gliomatosis cerebri is presented with sequential MRI findings which suggest that this rare entity is a late manifestation of a focal glioma spreading via the white matter fiber tracts over a relatively long period of time.
