Özet

The authors present a 14-year-old patient who developed an anaplastic oligoastrocytoma of the left parietal lobe 9 years after a successful treatment of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). He had a history of induction chemotherapy, intrathecal methotrexate and prophylactic whole brain irradiation (1,800 cGy in 10 fractions over 2 weeks).
