Abstract

We present a case of malignant transformation of diffuse infiltrating glial neoplasm after a prolonged stable period on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and spectroscopy (MRS) initially discovered with a hypothalamic hamartoma. Although MRI and MRS suggest the possibility of malignant transformation in future, they cannot precisely predict the timing of rapid growth.
