Abstract

Medulloblastoma is a common tumor of the posterior fossa, representing 20-25% of all pediatric neoplasms. It commonly occurs in the midline (cerebellar vermis) and rarely at the cerebellopontine angle. Most of them are intra-axial, and an extra-axial location of this tumor is very rare. Extra-axial cerebellopontine angle medulloblastoma is extremely uncommon and has never been reported in an infant. We report an extra-axial cerebellopontine angle medulloblastoma in a 1-year-old child.
