A 40-year-old man suffered from a right parietal oligodendroglioma. Two months after the onset of clinical symptoms complete removal of the tumor was attempted. At second craniotomy four years later the tumor was found to invade the falx cerebri. The patient died seven years after the first admission to the hospital. Necropsy revealed the right parietal oligodendroglioma invading the sagittal sinus and the left hemisphere as well as metastases in the lung, the lymph-nodes, the vertebra, and the femur.


Ein 40jähriger Mann erkrankte an einem rechts parietal gelegenen Oligodendrogliom. Zwei Monate nach Auftreten der ersten klinischen Symptome wurde der Tumor operativ entfernt. Vier Jahre später erfolgte die zweite Kraniotomie. Das Tumorrezidiv war in die Falx cerebri eingewachsen. Sieben Jahre nach der ersten Klinikaufnahme starb der Patient. Die Obduktion ergab ein Oligodendrogliomrezidiv des rechten Parietallappens mit Durchbruch des Tumors durch den Sinus sagittalis superior und Infiltration der linken Hemisphäre sowie Lungen-, Lymphknoten- und Skeletmetastasen.
