AbstractA boy aged 7.5 years presented with precocious onset of secondary sexual characteristics and symptoms and signs of neurological dysfunction. A CT brain scan demonstrated a suprasellar mass lesion. The elevated β-hCG and α-fetoprotein concentrations in cerebrospinal fluid and in serum were consistent with a diagnosis of intracranial embryonal carcinoma, although histological diagnosis was not available. The tumour markers β-hCG and α-FP should be looked for in all children with precocious puberty presenting with midline brain tumours.
