Abstract

We present a 65-year-old female with bilateral thalamic astrocytoma. The unusual long survival of this patient allowed the manifestation of a complex neurobehavioural syndrome due to gradual involvement of several thalamic nuclei. An attempt is made to approach the complexity of symptoms according to the anatomical areas, nuclei and thalamic connections infiltrated.
