A 74-year-old man was diagnosed with cerebellar glioblastoma multiforme (GBM). He initially presented with headache, nausea, vomiting, and truncal ataxia. Computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed a round mass with ring enhancement in the vermis of the cerebellum. Subtotal removal of tumour was performed, and the pathological diagnosis was cerebellar glioblastoma multiforme. Subsequently, radiochemotherapy was performed. GBM of the cerebellum is rare and only accounts for a small fraction of all GBM. To our knowledge, there have only been 7 cases of senile cerebellar GBM reported. Our patient is one of the oldest cases recorded in the Asian literature.
