Medulloblastoma belongs to the group of highly malignant neuroepithelial tumours and is the commonest tumour in childhood (average age nine years) followed by astrocytoma1. Medulloblastoma usually arises in the posterior fossa, namely the cerebellar vermis, and more seldom in the fourth ventricle, supratentorium and spinal cord. We describe the 3 Tesla magnetic resonance (MR) features of a medulloblastoma located in the right cerebellar hemisphere adhering to the tentorium in a 16-year-old male.
