The authors present a patient with a germ cell tumour in the region of the pineal gland. The diagnostic value of tumour markers in serum and cerebrospinal fluid is discussed and the localizing value of a convergence-retraction nystagmus is emphasized. The role of both the tumour markers and the specific eye movement disorder in monitoring therapeutic success or failure is stressed.
