Abstract

Cerebellopontine angle extraaxial glioblastoma (GBM) is extremely rare at any age but especially in children. We reported a case of 14-year-old girl, who presented with nausea, vomiting and ataxia. She was evaluated with computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Imaging demonstrated irregular ring enhancing right CP angle mass. The atypical findings of irregular ring enhancement, CP angle location and presentation in childhood, combine to make the prospective diagnosis of GBM a difficult one. This combination of findings has been reported very rarely.
