Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Gliomatosis cerebri (GC) is characterized by a diffuse infiltration of neoplastic glial cells with preservation of neuronal architecture. It can be very difficult to diagnose during life because the clinical manifestations are protean and tests are often nondiagnostic. The diagnosis of GC needs to be based on radiological, clinical and pathological criteria. We present a patient with GC, which initially presented as acute stroke attack. We discuss the usefulness of noninvasive methods, such a MR spectroscopy, in the diagnosis, grading and management of GC.
