Glioblastoma multiforme, also referred to as grade IV astrocytoma, is the most aggressive form of glioma and incredibly a fast-growing tumor. The typical presentation of the frontal lobe tumors includes difficulty in attention and concentration, urinary incontinence, problems in memory and learning, and difficulties in impulse control, reasoning, planning, decision-making, control, and coordination of movement. Frontal lobe tumors can become very large before they manifest clinically, and their symptoms may be trivial. We report here a case of Foster–Kennedy syndrome presenting as depression as the first symptom along with the rare finding of “Transient Oculomotor Nerve palsy” during the seizure episode.
