Extraneural metastasis in a child with atypical teratoid rhabdoid tumor of the central nervous system

Atypical teratoid rhabdoid tumor is a distinctive brain tumor appearing in infancy and early childhood. Leptomeningeal dissemination is common, both at presentation and relapse. Extracranial metastases of the central nervous system tumors are rarely seen. To our knowledge there is only one report with an atypical teratoid rhabdoid tumor metastasizing via a ventriculoperitoneal shunt. We describe the first case of atypical teratoid rhabdoid tumor of the central nervous system who developed lung metastasis without the presence of a shunt.
