Abstract

Despite being the most common paediatric tumour medulloblastoma remain a rare diagnosis in adults, this resulting in a paucity of data and guidance for treatment options. Utilising a case presentation of a 42 year old patient, we reviews the distinct characteristics, presentation and treatment options for adult medulloblastoma, also examining the incidence and outcomes com-paring our case with current evidenced based literature.
