Adult medulloblastoma associated with syringomyelia: a case report.

Wang CC - Cancer Biol Med (2012)

Bottom Line: The association between cerebellar medulloblastoma and syringomyelia is uncommon and only found in pediatric patients.Paroxysmal bradycardia is an uncommon clinical manifestation in posterior fossa tumors and likely to be vagally mediated via brainstem preganglionic cardiac motor neurons.This report introduces the diagnosis and treatment of a case of adult medulloblastoma associated with syringomyelia, which presented with paroxysmal bradycardia.

ABSTRACT
The association between cerebellar medulloblastoma and syringomyelia is uncommon and only found in pediatric patients. To date, adult medulloblastoma associated with syringomyelia has not been reported in the literature. Paroxysmal bradycardia is an uncommon clinical manifestation in posterior fossa tumors and likely to be vagally mediated via brainstem preganglionic cardiac motor neurons. This report introduces the diagnosis and treatment of a case of adult medulloblastoma associated with syringomyelia, which presented with paroxysmal bradycardia.

f1: Contrast-enhanced CT revealing a lesion in the fourth ventricle (A), leading to obstructive hydrocephalus with a dilatation of the third and lateral ventricle (B).

Mentions: A computed tomography (CT) scan of the head using an intravenous contrast revealed a solid lesion of 2.5 cm in diameter with lobulated cysts and mild contrast enhancement in the fourth ventricle (Figure 1). A nearly complete obstruction of the foramen magnum by cerebellar tonsillar herniation and a dilatation of the third and lateral ventricles with subependymal edema were also demonstrated (Figure 1).
