Abstract
The extraaxial presentation of a medulloblastoma is rare. This article describes the case of a 12-year-old boy who presented with severe headache, nausea, and vomiting. The tumor developed in the left tentorium; it was misdiagnosed as a meningioma based on the radiology examination. We review the literature and discuss the atypical presentation of medulloblastoma.
Key Words: Atypical medulloblastoma, Tentorium
