Multifocal tumors are usually reported within the same cerebral hemisphere due to widespread dissemination along the white matter tracts. This case report describes the magnetic resonance imaging appearances of multifocal anaplastic oligodendroglioma in a 28-year-old adult male that showed three discrete heterogeneously enhancing cortical-based lesions in the left frontoparietal lobes. Left frontal craniotomy was performed and biopsy of the lesion was obtained, histopathology of which showed features of anaplastic oligodendroglioma.
