Abstract

We present a 68-year-old woman who presented with symptoms of frontotemporal dementia. Brain MRI revealed tumor mass in both thalami and according to WHO classification, the tumor corresponded to diffuse fibrillary astrocytoma grade II. This case points to the role of neuroimaging in patients presenting with classical symptoms of dementia.
