This research is about a case study of an adult with diagnosis and resection of primitive neuroectodermic tumor of the central nervous system. This report describes their cognitive functioning after surgical and pharmacological treatment. This case is relevant because tumors of this category are of strange appearance in adults. For the evaluation of cognitive functions, a neuropsychological evaluation protocol was used, consisting of: Scale activities of daily living, Goldberg scale, Subjective complaint of memory and / or scale of memory disorders (QSM), Abbreviated neuropsychological examination program, Test Barcelona abbreviated (TB-A), Young NEURONORMA Program, BANFE II Neuropsychological Battery of Executive Functions and TBDA Boston test for the diagnosis of Aphasia. Significant alterations were found in advanced activities of daily life (AADL) and major neurocognitive disorder. This article constitutes a contribution to the knowledge of the neuropsychological functions that are affected in a case of a brain tumor, which, according to what is reported in the literature, due to its histology is of rare appearance in adults. This type of neuropsychological profiles allow the design of pertinent and effective rehabilitation plans.
