Abstract

We report a pilomyxoid astrocytoma (PMA) presenting with CSF rhinorrhoea in a 15-year-old. This uncommon, recently described entity typically presents in infancy with focal neurological or endocrine symptoms, has distinctive histologic features and displays a more aggressive behaviour than pilocytic astrocytoma (PA) with which it was previously classified.
