Abstract

Atypical rhabdoid/teratoid tumor (ATRT) is an uncommon and highly malignant tumor of the central nervous system. The majority of ATRT tumors occur in infancy and young children located in the posterior fossa. The ideal treatment for cure remains controversial and prognosis is typically unfavorable. We present a case of an atypical presentation of ATRT, presenting in adolescence with an additional low-grade glioneuronal tumor discovered at diagnosis.
