BACKGROUND 5-Aminolevulinic acid (5-ALA)-fluorescence-guided resection of malignant glioma is well established in many neuro-oncology departments. In addition, the use of 5-ALA has been reported for cerebral metastases, meningioma, and spinal tumors. We report a case of a patient with a leptomeningeal spread of a K27M-mutated spinal anaplastic astrocytoma (World Health Organization° [WHO] III), which was detected by its faint 5-ALA-induced fluorescence.
