Course Description

Patient Case 1: A 42-year-old right-handed man presented with several weeks of mild cognitive and personality changes followed by a new onset generalized seizure which brought him to urgent medical attention. MRI of the brain demonstrated a large non-enhancing mass centered in the left frontal lobe, with involvement of the corpus callosum. He underwent craniotomy with resection of the majority of the lesion, though with measurable small volume residual disease. Pathology demonstrated grade II oligodendroglioma.

Patient Case 2: A 55-year-old right-handed woman presented with unrelenting headaches and fatigue, prompting neuroimaging. MRI of the brain demonstrated a non-enhancing, infiltrative neoplasm involving the left superior frontal gyrus, extending posteromedially to the cingulate gyrus. She underwent craniotomy and gross total resection of her tumor. Pathology was reported as diffuse astrocytoma, WHO grade II.
