Abstract

Subfrontal tumors are an infrequent cause of dementia. Most of those that do cause dementia are meningiomas, and the symptoms may recede when the tumor is resected. A patient with a huge prolactinoma who came to medical attention because of dementia is described. The tumor shrank dramatically after bromocriptine therapy and the patient's mental status returned to normal.
