PMID:  7838347     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We report a case of pleomorphic xanthoastrocytoma occurring in the midline cerebellum of a 48-year-old woman. Radiological, histological, immunohistochemical, and flow cytometric findings are discussed. Pleomorphic xanthoastrocytoma typically occurs in the superficial cerebral hemispheres of young patients. To our knowledge, this is the first report of the occurrence of this neoplasm in the cerebellum. The English literature is reviewed with regard to the clinicopathological features of this uncommon form of astrocytoma.
