Background Ependymoma (EPN) is the third most common central nervous system tumor in childhood. Recent advances in the molecular classification of EPN revealed a supratentorial (ST) ependymoma subgroup characterized by C11orf95-RELA fusion. Case Report We describe a novel RELA-fusion composed by a chimeric transcript C11orf95-LOC-RELA in a supratentorial WHO grade II EPN occurring in a 4-year-old child. Metastatic loci at the brain, leptomeningeal involvement, and pulmonary nodules were identified at tumor recurrence. The child eventually died before 1 year after recurrence. Conclusion This index case showed aggressive behavior and nuclear accumulation of p65/RELA. (AU)
