ABSTRACT
We present a case of ganglioglioma in the cerebellar vermis. A 2-year-old boy presented with symptoms and signs of raised intracranial pressure and the physical examination revealed large head and developmental delay. Magnetic resonance image demonstrated a hypointense mass in the cerebellar vermis on T1-weighted image with heterogeneous enhancement after gadolinium administration, mimicking a malignant tumor. A gross total resection was performed and pathologic findings demonstrated a ganglioglioma. There was no evidence of recurrence of the tumor during 16 months follow up period.
Key Words: Ganglioglioma; Cerebellum
