Bottom Line: These are not frequent but are life-treating conditions.Diagnosis is not easy, and for this reason some cases are treated late.We describe here a very infrequent oncological case of dangerous adipsic diabetes insipidus in a young girl who survived.

ABSTRACT
Central diabetes insipidus is a very common disorder after brain surgery or/trauma or even in the presence of brain inflammatory diseases. Polyuria and polydipsia are the clinical markers, but sometimes clinical situations are presenting with no thirst. These are not frequent but are life-treating conditions. Diagnosis is not easy, and for this reason some cases are treated late. We describe here a very infrequent oncological case of dangerous adipsic diabetes insipidus in a young girl who survived.

Figure 2: Axial MRI (flair view).

Mentions: A hypothalamic lesion was diagnosed in a 13-year-young girl. She complained of headaches, and RNM revealed a tumor mass occupying the whole hypothalamic area. She underwent a biopsy, and the histological examination showed a germinal cell tumor (fig. 1, fig. 2). She was treated with radiotherapy above the hall skull and medullae with 30 and 24 Gy, respectively. Also, a 24-Gy boost was done above the tumor. She did not undergo chemotherapy.
