Desmoplastic infantile ganglioglioma (DIG) is a rare brain tumor encountered in infants. In spite of its large size at presentation and occasional high mitotic activity on histopathology, the tumor has a good prognosis. A 7-month-old baby girl developed increasing head circumference. On ultrasound, a large multicystic mass was seen. We report the cranial ultrasound findings for the first time. Correlative imaging of this recently recognized entity is shown.
