Since oligodendroglioma was first described by Bailey & Cushing in 1926, there have been numerous studies reporting detailed description of the clinical and pathological characteristics of the tumor. It is a slow growing tumor usually in adults, with the highest frequency between 30 and 50 years, and affect the cerebral hemispheres, particularly the frontal lobes. Of all brain tumors the oligodendroglioma is the most likely to contain calcareous deposits which can be demonstrated radiologically in 40% to 50%. It consists of a continous sheet of uniformed small, round & densely packed cells interruptedly only by remarkably regular network of small blood vessels in histology. We have been recently experienced of a case of typical oligodendroglioma and reviewed the literatures.
