Case Study Series: Mature Teratoma Cerebellopontine Angle
This case involves a previously normal child who, at 15 months old, presented with nystagmus, or abnormal eye movements. Her neurologist recommended she have an MRI, and the results showed large tumor in the posterior fossa compressing her brain stem.
This was one of the largest tumors I have ever seen. We initially did a biopsy since the lesion was so large and she was so young to see if there was a role for chemotherapy prior to surgery.
