Aim The aim of this article is to present a case of medulloblastoma in an adult patient aged 46 and the problems associated with its treatment.
Case Description The authors present a case of medulloblastoma in a 46-year old male patient. The tumour, which is typically identified in childhood, is very rare in adults. The incidence rate, in individuals older than 16 years of age, is 0.05 per 100,000.
Results The patient was subjected to combined therapy consisting of surgery and subsequent radiotherapy. This choice of management was successful – the patient has been followed up since the completion of therapy and no relapses have been noted.
Conclusions Based on this particular case, and the current literature, the authors discuss contemporary management methods in medulloblastoma.
