MRI of a 32 year old female with headaches demonstrated a cerebellar hemispheric mass. Initially the mass was hypointense on T1 weighted imaging without enhancement; a repeat MRI six months later demonstrated edema crossing the midline, effacement of the fourth ventricle, and no enhancement. The patient underwent surgical resection of the mass, which was diagnosed as desmoplastic medulloblastoma. Differences between pediatric and adult medulloblastomas, including their location, histologic type, and radiographic appearance are discussed.
