Abstract
We present the first case report describing a craniotomy for a Glioblastoma in a patient with Hemihydranencephaly (HHE). Ten years ago our patient had average cognitive and language functions, indicating very good adaption of his single right hemisphere. Due to the tumor he developed a deceleration, deficits in language functions as well as mild impairments of basic cognitive functions. Further neuroplastic reorganizations of his right hemisphere in response to the tumor growth are discussed. The favorable postoperative outcome supported the decision for careful tumor resection in this patient with HHE.
