Medulloblastoma in late adults: report of two cases and critical review of the literature

J Neurooncol. 1994;19(2):169-73.

Abstract

The authors describe two cases of medulloblastoma occurring in two men aged 71 and 67 years respectively. Medulloblastoma in late adults (older than 65 years) is an exceptional occurrence, and in this age group is generally of the classic type. Our first case was exceptional for the long survival of the patient compared with those so far reported for the same age group.
