ABSTRACT
The extraaxial presentation of medulloblastoma is a rare phenomenon. This article describes the case of 19-year old woman who presented with mild headache and nausea and was diagnosed with medulloblastoma. The tumor arose from the right cerebellar cortex, and it was misdiagnosed meningioma on the basis of radiological examination. We review the literature and discuss the such atypical presentation of medulloblastoma.
Key Words: Medulloblastoma; Meningioma; Atypical
