Abstract

We report the case of a 13-year old with a radiological diagnosis of relapsed medulloblastoma. Eighteen months after the last course of palliative chemotherapy MRI showed radiological resolution. The lesions were retrospectively assumed to be a radiation effect, highlighting the potential benefits of biopsy to confirm presumed radiological recurrence.
