Abstract

Background: :Multinodular and vacuolating neuronal tumor (MVNT) recently described as a purely neuronal tumor. Although its nature as a genuine tumor is controversial, this new entity assumed benign lesion and mostly affecting adults. Herein, we introduce two cases of MVNT presumed low grade glial tumor (LGG) and focal cortical dyplasia (FCD) as a differential diagnosis.
