Adult medulloblastoma is a rare intracranial tumor. Our patient is a 61 year old woman treated with cranial irradiation 15 years previously for a low grade astrocytoma in the left posterior temporal lobe that was recently diagnosed with medulloblastoma in the right cerebellum. This is the first reported case of radiation induced adult medulloblastoma.
