Reports of congenital anaplastic astrocytoma have been rare, representing less than 2% of all brain tumors. We present a case of a congenital anaplastic astrocytoma discovered during the first 24 hours after delivery. A recent literature review found 12 additional cases since 1972. The presenting signs, most common findings on neuroimaging, treatment, and outcome are examined.
