Abstract

We report the case of a child, 11 years old, admitted to our hospital for headache persisting for a week, without any other symptoms. CT scanner was performed, showing an infiltrating lesion of right parietal-temporal lobe. MRI confirmed the diagnosis. The histological examination showed a glioblastoma multiforme. This brain tumor is rare during pediatric age and presents a poor prognosis. The case reported emphasises the importance to give attention to an sudden and persistent headache in children without other symptoms and in a good state of health.
