Medulloblastoma is more common in young age and rare in adult age. Some characteristics that characterize medulloblastoma in adults compared with children: Lateral cerebellar location, heterogeneous signal intensity on magnetic resonance imaging, desmoplastic histological variant and more favorable prognosis. Preoperative diagnosis is important for correct management of these patients. However, because of the low incidence of medulloblastoma in adults, preoperative diagnosis still challenging and prognostic factors and best treatment options are still controversial. We report a case of a 31-year-old male patient who presented with a rare case of posterior fossa medulloblastoma.
