The clinical and histopathological findings in a child suffering from both cerebral and spinal gliomas of differing histological types are described. There was a family history of von Recklinghausen's neurofibromatosis. The possibility of overlooking the symptoms and signs pointing to a spinal cord lesion in the presence of a known intracranial tumour is stressed.
