Abstract

Unlike diffuse gliomas, such as oligodendrogliomas and central neurocytomas, DNTs are benign lesions with a favorable prognosis after surgical resection. Therefore, recognition of DNTs at atypical ectopic locations is essential for predicting the clinical course and for making the right therapeutic decisions.
