Medulloblastoma is the most common infratentorial malignant tumour under 15 years of age. In recent protocols, the patients are stratified for treatment in standard risk or high risk, according to the clinical variables as age, localized or disseminated disease, degree of surgical resection and more recently expected biological behaviour based on retrospective and prospective studies of former samples analyzed. The objectives for future treatments are reduce morbidity without jeopardizing survival.
