The Teaching Point

Angiocentric glioma is a rare tumor associated with epilepsy. On MRI it is characterized by cortical hyper-intense "rim" on T1WI and ovoid lesion perpendicular to the cerebral ventricle on T2WI. It is histopathologically characterized by monomorphous bipolar cells with angiocentric growth pattern.

Abstract
Angiocentric glioma is a rare subtype of neuroepithelial tumor that is associated with a history of epilepsy. We report a case of cystoid angiocentric glioma associated with an area of calcification. This 25 year old male patient presented with tonic clonic spasm. He underwent craniotomy with complete resection of the lesion. Pathologic specimen showed monomorphous bipolar cells with angiocentric growth pattern.
