Özet

The frequency of bilateral tumoral involvement of both thalami is not defined in the literature In the present report we describe a new adult case of primary bilateral thalamic tumor observed in our clinic She complained of left upper extremity paresis Cranial magnetic resonance imaging revealed bilateral thalamic lesion The lesion was diagnosed as an anaplastic astrocytoma by stereotactic biopsy Radiotherapy and chemotherapy was recommended to her The diffuse and bilateral involvement of both thalami by tumors makes surgical therapy not feasible even at the present time Today the main role of surgery is still to obtain a histological diagnosis
