A rare case of teratoma occuring in the posterior cranial fossa is reported. The tumor was partially encapsulated, and a surgical removal was accomplished. Teratoma is defined as a true tumor, composed of several types of tissues representing more than one germinal layer, which are foreign to the part in which it arises. The literature on teratomas located in the posterior cranial fossa is reviewed.
