Cerebellar astrocytomas have some characteristics such as benign histologic features, frequent cyst formation, tumors of early life and good postoperative prognosis. Cerebellar astrocytomas may arise from any part of cerebellum and tumors originated from vermis usually grew symmetrically in the vermis or invade the hemisphere. We recently experienced a case of cerebellar astrocytoma which entirely filled the 4th ventricle without evidence of tumor growth in the vermis or hemisphere. We report this case with its autopsy findings.
