Abstract
The majority of deaths due to intracranial tumors are preceded by long periods of symptoms, resulting in diagnosis of the tumors. And introduction of CT and MRI have led to increased early detection of intracranial tumors. Nonetheless, sudden unexpected deaths from intracranial tumors are rarely encountered at autopsy. We report an autopsy case of 2-year-old boy who died from medulloblastoma.
Key Words: sudden death, intracranial neoplasm, medulloblastoma, autopsy
