The juvenile pilocytic astrocytoma has histologically the same features as the adult type one. Contrary to the adult type, the parallel arrangement of fibrils in long thin tapering cells of the tumor is peculiarly independent of the environment in which the tumor is growing and it gives rise to the main tumor mass that is usually well circumscribed. The overall incidence is relatively rare of all the brain tumor, it occurs in children mainly from three to five of age. Its predilection sites are the hypothalamus and the optic chiasm. We are reporting an experience of a juvenile pilocytic astrocytoma in a three years old female patient, involving the hypothalamus, basal ganglia and deep white matter of the temporoparietal lobe of the left side.
