CT findings of medulloblastoma

CT findings of medulloblastoma

Child's Brain 11(1): 60-68

Computed tomography (CT) of 11 patients with medulloblastoma was evaluated. 6 of them showed solid, nearly homogenous lesions and definite enhancement after infusion of contrast medium. However, 5 cases showed heterogenous mass lesions composed of the areas of low density and iso- or slightly high density which was attenuated by contrast enhancement. Histological examinations revealed that 2 cases had differentiated medulloblastomas, but the other 3 typical medulloblastomas. It should be reminded in the differential diagnosis of cerebellar tumors of pediatric patients that medulloblastoma can reveal heterogenous mass in CT scan.
