ABSTRACT
Pleomorphic xanthoastrocytoma is a rare type of glioma and usually occurs in the superficial cerebral hemisphere of the patients under the age of 30 years. We report a case of pleomorphic xanthoastrocytoma in the cerebellum of a 3-month-old infant. This is an unusual case in view of location and age. The literatures concerning the clinicopathological aspects of this unusual pleomorphic xanthoastrocytoma are reviewed.
Key Words: Pleomorphic xanthoastrocytoma; Cerebellum; Infant
