The anesthetic management of a parturient with an intracranial tumor can be quite challenging for the anesthetist as it requires a fine balance of both maternal and fetal safety. The literature pertaining to anesthetic management of such cases is limited. We describe the anesthetic management and peri-operative concerns of this unusual case of a parturient aged 25 years with 8 months amenorrhea and a high grade glioma in the left temporo-parietal region who underwent cesarean section under general anesthesia immediately followed by craniotomy. Anesthetic management was tailored keeping in mind maternal safety and fetal considerations.
