Clinical Course

MRI of the brain showed a large cerebellar mass (Figure). The patient underwent partial resection of the tumor. Biopsy of the tumor showed that it was an undifferentiated teratoma. After the partial resection, the patient received chemotherapy and radiation treatment. The patient's tumor advanced despite treatment, and palliative care was eventually offered to keep the patient comfortable at home.
