Abstract

The exceptional case of a 19-month-old boy with an apparently isolated frontal lesion and a huge holocord neoplastic involvement, presenting with a subtly indolent preoperative course and a particularly tumultuous evolution, is reported. The diagnosis of embryonal tumour with abundant neuropil and true rosettes was posed.
