Abstract: Pleomorphic xanthoastrocytoma is a rare variant of cerebral glioma. We present a case of 21-year-old male with history of seizure and diminution of vision of right eye. Computed tomography [CT] and Magnetic resonance imaging [MRI] were performed revealing a mass at right cerebellopontine region infiltrating into right cerebellum and right half of brainstem with supratentorial petro-clival extension. Diagnosis of pleomorphic xanthoastrocytoma was considered. Patient underwent tumour resection. Histopathology confirmed the diagnosis.
