We report an unusual case of radiation-induced glioma with a very long latent period. The patient had a history of brain stem glioma diagnosed 40 years earlier treated by radiotherapy. For treatment of radiation-induced glioma, radiotherapy was utilized again. Following therapy, the patient presented with an acute pontine infarct. To the best of our knowledge this may be the first report of radiation-induced glioma and radiation-induced stroke occurring within the same patient.
