    Abstract

    We report the case of a 21-year-old male who sustained an uncal herniation and subsequent brain death following general anesthesia, for a minor orthopedic procedure, owing to the presence of a large, unsuspected temporal glioma. The possible factors responsible for the precipitation of this event are appraised.
