Patients with breast cancer may develop cerebral metastasis. Radio- and chemotherapy are advocated as an alternative to surgery in such patients. A woman operated on for breast cancer 2 years earlier developed a cerebral lesion. A definite preoperative diagnosis of the lesion was not possible on the basis of CT and MRI findings. The lesion proved to be a supratentorial hemangioblastoma. Neurosurgical treatment is recommended for patients with breast cancer who present a cerebral lesion, since a correct diagnosis may only be possible in the operating theater.
