Medulloblastoma is the most common malignant solid tumor, affecting children.

This tumor grows in the cerebellar region and tends to disseminate via cerebrospinal fluid to other areas of the central nervous system.

Among signs and symptoms of medulloblastoma we can find headaches, nausea, incoordination, altered speech, dizziness, difficulty walking.

Although an uncommon tumor in adults, it represents the most frequent tumor among children.

The diagnostic process starts with medical history, neurological examination and complementary central nervous system images.

Treatment is, most cases, surgical excision, followed by chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
