Abstract
Gangliogliomas could be found anywhere throughout the central nervous system and mainly affect children and young adults during the first three decades of life. Cerebellar gangliogliomas may be rarely found, especially in old ages. Here, we present a case of ganglioglioma of the cerebellum in an old patient. The cystic cerebellar mass was associated with calcifications, intratumoral hemorrhage without ng edema. When a cystic cerebellar mass is associated with calcifications and intratumoral hemorrhage, ganglioglioma should be included in differential diagnosis. Gangliogliomas usually have good prognoses. Radiation therapy should be deferred even in subtotally removed cases.
