  • Look Inside

A long-term result after total removal of a giant intracranial teratoma in early infancy is reported. The patient was a 5-month-old boy with vomiting, con-vulsion and right hemiparesis occuring acutely and shortly before admission. Plain skull films, In-113m brain scintiscanning and carotid angiography revealed a giant tumor located widely over both frontal lobes. At operation, the tumor, originated from the base of the anterior half of the cranial cavity. A mature teratoma weighing 320 grams was totally removed without sacrificing the adjacent brain and vessels.
