Cerebrovascular Infarction: Oligodendroglioma

  • Martina Špero


One morning in November 2009, a 73-year-old female was referred to the brain computed tomography scanning from emergency hospital department (EHD) due to motoric dysphasia lasting for 5 days and subjective right-sided weakness (Fig. 1.1).
