Abstract

Two cases of multiple concomitant CNS tumors of different histologic types are presented.  One was a case of neurofibromatosis type 2 (NF2) with 6 CNS tumors, and the other a case of 4 CNS tumors without any evidence of NF. To our knowledge, there is no report of concomitant occurrence of 6 CNS tumors in the medical literature. Neuroradiological  and operative findings are illustrated and discussed.
