Abstract

For a long time, head injury has been considered as a possible causative factor for later development of brain tumors. However, the actual role of previous head trauma in the pathogenesis of intracranial tumors is still a matter of debate, also due to the possible medico-legal implications. Some authors have suggested several criteria for establishing a possible causal relationship between the aforementioned factors. We report a case of a left posterior paraventricular high-grade glioma which developed 20 years after a posttraumatic hematoma occurring in the same area. This case is reported in detail and the relevant literature is reviewed.
