Abstract :

Malignant glioma development after trauma is a rare occurrence. We report a glioblastoma multiforme case that developed after a depressed skull fracture. A 65-year-old man was admitted because of right sided hemiplegia, epilepsy and changes in consciousness due to a malignant glial tumor. He had been operated on for a left calvarial depression fracture caused by cerebral laceration thirty-five years before. Radiologic imaging revealed a large contrast-enhanced mass lesion at the left frontotemporoparietal junction under the depression site. The patient underwent urgent surgery, and radical excision of the mass was achieved. The histopathologic diagnosis was a high-grade glial tumor. Although the possibility of a pre-existing tumor rather than a trauma-induced tumor is very high, the presented case suggests that traumatic cerebral lesions may also be a predisposing factor for the development of malignant glial tumors. Key Words: Brain injury, Glial cell tumors, Trauma Travma sonrasinda malign glioma gelisimi cok nadir gelisen bir durumdur. Atmisbes yasindaki erkek hasta malign glial tumor nedeniyle gelisen sag hemipleji, epilepsi ve bilinc kaybi ile klinigimize kabul edildi. Hasta 35 yil once sol kalvaryal depresyon frakturune bagli serebral laserasyon nedeniyle ameliyat edilmistir. Radyolojik goruntulemede depresyon alaninin altinda sol frontotemporoparyetal loblarda kontrast tutan buyuk bir kitle lezyonu gostermekteydi. Hasta acil operasyona alinarak radikal kitle eksizyonu uygulandi. Onceden mevcut bir tumor olma olasiligi travma kaynakli tumorden cok yuksek olmasina ragmen, sunulan olguda travmatik beyin lezyonu malign glial tumor gelisiminde predispozan bir faktor olabilir. Anahtar Kelimeler: Beyin hasari, Glial hucre tumoru, Travma
