Cerebellar ganglioglioma

Badr Fedoul, Zouhayr Souirti

Abstract


The cerebellar location of ganglioglioma (GG) is exceptional. We report one case of a 27-year-old man who underwent an intracranial hypertension syndrome and a static cerebellar syndrome. Brain magnetic resonance images revealed a cyst image in the vermis. Histological study after surgical removal, revealed a ganglioglioma tumor. Through this case and literature review, the authors discuss some epidemiological, histological, clinical, radiological and management features of this very rare tumor.
