ABSTRACT
Two cases of multicentric gliomas with long survival are reported. One patient underwent multiple surgical procedures while another had two separate surgical procedures at the same time. Presence of calcification of CT scan in one case raised suspicion for a preoperative diagnosis of oligodendroglioma. Lack of direct continuity or subarachnoid enhancement on CT scan and low histological grade of the tumours suggested their primary multicentric origin. The incidence of multicentric gliomas in our experience is 0.4% amongst 500 glial tumours over a period of eight years.
