The incidence of brain tumors that become symptomatic during pregnancy is decreased compared to women of the same age. These tumors originating from glial cells are intrinsic parenchymal tumors that can be slow-growing or aggressive and invasive depending on the degree. They typically present with nonspecific symptoms such as headache, nausea, and vomiting. Brain tumors that occur during pregnancy carry serious risks for both mother and fetus. The 33-week pregnant patient presented to our clinic with the complaint of emergency labor, and it was learned that in her medical history she had epilepsy attacks every day in the last month. Previous examinations of the patient were repeated in consultation with neurology and neurosurgery, and glioblastoma was detected in the right temporal region of the patient. A multidisciplinary approach and treatment of brain tumors during pregnancy should be performed according to the patient.

Gebelikte semptomatik hale gelen beyin tümörlerinin görülme sıklığı, aynı yaştaki kadınlardakine kıyasla azalmış görülmektedir. Glial hücrelerden kaynaklanan bu tümörler, derecesine bağlı olarak yavaş büyüyen veya agresif ve invaziv olabilen intrinsik parankimal tümörlerdir. Tipik olarak baş ağrısı, bulantı ve kusma gibi nonspesifik semptomlarla ortaya çıkarlar. Gebelikte ortaya çıkan beyin tümörleri hem anne hem fetus için ciddi riskler taşımaktadır. Acil kadın doğuma sancı şikayetiyle başvuran 33 hafta gebe hastanın anamnezinde son 1 ayda her gün epilepsi atakları olduğu öğrenildi. Hastanın daha önceki tetkikleri nöroloji ve nöroşirurjiye danışılarak tekrarlandı ve hastanın sağ temporal bölgede glioblastom saptandı. Gebelikte beyin tümörleri multidisipliner yaklaşılmalı ve tedavisinde hastaya göre hareket edilmelidir.
