Abstract
A 6-year-old boy was referred with symptoms of right partial ptosis, blurred vision and a two-week history of poor coordination and frequent falls. No symptoms of raised intracranial pressure were demonstrated. Imaging showed a large sella mass with extension into the posterior fossa and suprasellar region, suggestive of a craniopharyngioma. Histopathological examination of the post-surgical resection specimen revealed a small blue cell tumor consistent with a medulloblastoma. This case aims to highlight a posterior fossa tumor with an unusual spread and thus clinical presentation.
