A peripheral palsy of the facial nerve that results in muscle weakness on one side of the face usually manifests as Bell's palsy. Glioma in the left half of the pons and middle cerebellar peduncle is a rare cause of isolated infranuclear facial paralysis. We report a case of 12- year-old female patient who came to our hospital with isolated unilateral facial palsy but turned out to have a low grade glioma.
