In a previous communication,1 two cases of this supposedly rare tumor were described, and a résumé of the available reported cases was made. Particular attention was paid to the group of gangliogliomas2 that have their origin in the floor of the third ventricle (tuber cinereum). Since the first report was submitted, another glioma of this type, occurring in the right temporal lobe, has been studied. In addition, further investigations have brought to light other reported cases of evidently typical gangliogliomas. In order to make the review of the literature more complete, as well as to describe this new case, this further contribution was undertaken.
Among tumors of the glioma group, gangliogliomas are almost certainly not as uncommon as reports in the literature would suggest. In a personally studied series of seventy gliomas, three such tumors have been found, as well as one or two others which seem to
