Abstract

This is a case report of a 27-year-old female patient, G2P1, diagnosed at 20 weeks of gestation with a left frontal supratentorial tumor of a glioblastoma multiforme type, which manifested in the form of ictal absence. The patient was taken to surgery on week 28 and underwent a craniotomy under general anesthesia and fetal monitoring, with a successful outcome for both the mother and the fetus. We consider it important to report this case given this rare association.
