Medulloblastoma is a brain tumor located in the cerebellum, the part of the brain that controls balance, coordination, and other complex motor functions.
Doctors historically have classified medulloblastoma as either standard or high risk based on biopsy results. In recent years, however, studies by researchers at Dana-Farber/Boston Children’s and other institutions have shown that what we call medulloblastoma could actually be several different diseases. In fact, medulloblastoma can be divided into four molecular subtypes based on specific types of gene mutations within the tumor. Each subtype has a distinct survival rate, ranging from 20 to 90 percent.
How Dana-Farber/Boston Children’s approaches medulloblastoma
Children diagnosed with medulloblastoma are treated through the Medulloblastoma Treatment Program at the Dana-Farber/Boston Children's Brain Tumor Center, a world-renowned destination for children with malignant and non-malignant brain and spinal cord tumors.
