GUEVARA, Julissa K et al. Pilocytic astrocytomain children: Case Report. Rev Neuropsiquiatr [online]. 2015, vol.78, n.4, pp.248-252. ISSN 0034-8597.

We report a 10 years old boy with 2 weeks of symptoms characterized by headache, vomiting, staggering gait and drowsiness. The initial clinical examination showed bradilalia, ataxia, hyperreflexia, horizontal and vertical nystagmus, VI left cranial nerve paresis and signs of frontalization. The brain CT and MRI showed a posterior fossa tumor causing hydrocephaly. The histhopatology revealed grade I pilocytic astrocytoma(WHO).

Keywords : Cerebral tumor; pilocyticastrocytoma; hydrocephalus; children.
