Abstract We report a rare case of an extra-axial medulloblastoma at the cerebello-pontine angle. This case concerns a 4-year-old child with an intracranial hypertension syndrome with alterations in the state of consciousness evolving for two months. Cerebral scanning found a mass spontaneously hyper dense plated against the posterior wall of the associated left rock with a moderate dilatation of the ventricular system. Patient was operated in emergency of her brain tumor. The postoperative clinical evolution was satisfactory; the cerebral CT of control confirmed the total excision of the tumor. The diagnosis of medulloblastoma was confirmed by histology
