Cerebellar ganglioglioma

Pan Afr Med J. 2012:12:12. Epub 2012 May 22.


The cerebellar location of ganglioglioma (GG) is exceptional. We report one case of a 27-year-old man who underwent an intracranial hypertension syndrome and a static cerebellar syndrome. Brain magnetic resonance images revealed a cyst image in the vermis. Histological study after surgical removal, revealed a ganglioglioma tumor. Through this case and literature review, the authors discuss some epidemiological, histological, clinical, radiological and management features of this very rare tumor.

Keywords: Ganglioglioma; Morocco; cerebellar vermis; histology; tumour.
