Özet

Objectives: Lhermitte-Duclos disease (LDD), or dysplastic gangliocytoma of the cerebellum is a rare benign unilateral mass of the cerebellar cortex, characterized by a disarrangement of the normal cerebellar laminar cytoarchitecture and circumscribed enlargement of cerebellar folia. LDD was recently considered to be part of a multiple hamartoma-neoplasia syndrome [Cowden disease (CD)]. The debate whether LDD represents a neoplastic or hamartomatous lesion is still in progress.
