Diagnostic challenges in CNS neoplasms- Case Reports

Central nervous system neoplasms are a common finding in everyday neurological practice. CNS neoplasms account for about 1 percent of human body tumors, which can be primary or secondary, benign, or malignant, which intra-axial or extra-axial. A tumor in the central nervous system occurs when healthy cells shift in the brain or spinal cord and develop out of control, creating a mass. A tumor can be cancerous or can be benign. A cancerous tumor is malignant, which means it can develop and spread to other body parts. A benign tumor means that the tumor may develop but won't spread. A CNS tumor is particularly problematic because it can affect a person's thinking processes and movements. This type of tumor can be challenging to treat since the tissues around the tumor are often vital to the functioning of the body. For infants and young children, the diagnosis of CNS tumors can be especially difficult as their brain is still developing.
