Abstract

Synchronous brain tumors are rare in children. We present 2 unique cases of synchronous brain tumors and we elaborate on their presentation, diagnosis, approach to management, and outcome. The first case describes a unique and previously unreported combination of a supratentorial anaplastic ependymoma and a cerebellar low-grade glioma.
