ABSTRACT
Tectal gliomas are a distinct form of pediatric brainstem tumor usually present with increased intracranial pressure. The tumor may arise from different origins and the most common histologic form is low-grade astrocytoma. We would like to remind and emphasize why it is important to report a tectal glioma in magnetic resonance imaging reports giving two case samples.
