     Pediatric Radiology CasesMost likely etiology:

    neoplastic  

     
     Pediatric Radiology CasesHistory:

    1 3/4 year old boy with torticollis since birth. Now worsening ataxia and screaming episodes.  

     
     Pediatric Radiology CasesPathomorphology or Pathophysiology of this disease :

    Brain tumors which are diagnosed before the 2nd year, one presumes that they are congenital.
    This is possibly the case with this child, since the symptoms exist since birth.
    The astrocytoma is the most frequent tumor in childhood. 60 % of them are infratentorial.  

     
     Pediatric Radiology CasesRadiological findings:


    Extensive, mostly cystic, partly solid infratentorial brain tumor with consecutive occlusion hydrocephalus and signs of intracranial pressure.


    MRI 1 <- view MRI 1

    MRI 1: T2 weighted sequences with signal intense tumor and perifocal edema intracerebellar.





    MRI 2 <- view MRI 2

    MRI 2: FLAIR with partly signal intense and partly almost liquor intense tumor areas cerebellar. The IV. ventricle is occluded.





    MRI 3 <- view MRI 3

    MRI 3: T1 weighted image with hypointense tumor.





    MRI 4 <- view MRI 4

    MRI 4: T1 weighted image with contrast. Partly contrast enhancement in the solid areas and in the margins of the cysts.





    MRI 5 <- view MRI 5

    MRI 5: T1 weighted image with contrast, sagital view.





    MRI 6 <- view MRI 6

    MRI 6: T1 weighted image with contrast, coronal view.



     

     
     Pediatric Radiology CasesDiagnosis confirmation:

    Surgery / Histo  

     
     Pediatric Radiology CasesWhich DD would be also possible with the radiological findings:

    no  

     
     Pediatric Radiology CasesCourse / Prognosis / Frequency / Other :

    Good prognosis since this tumor has WHO grade I and rarely tends to spread liquorgenically.
