    Indu Rekha Meesa*

    Pediatric brain tumors are the most common solid tumors that develop in children second only to leukemia. They also account for the most cancer deaths in this patient population [1]. 7% of all the brain tumors that were diagnosed between 2006 and 2010 in the United States were in patients younger than 20 years of age [2]. Infratentorial tumors account for 45%-60% of brain tumors in children [3]. Some of the most common pediatric posterior fossa tumors are medulloblastoma, ependymoma, pilocytic astrocytoma, and atypical teratoid rhabdoid tumors. Medulloblastoma will be discussed in this paper.
