Abstract

MAHOMED, N et al. Atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumour in a supratentorial location: A report of two cases. S. Afr. j. child health [online]. 2014, vol.8, n.4, pp.159-161. ISSN 1999-7671.  http://dx.doi.org/10.7196/SAJCH.655.

Atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumour of the central nervous system is a rare, highly aggressive childhood malignancy. The age of presentation is usually <2 years, but this tumour may occur in other age groups. The typical location is the posterior fossa, with supratentorial origin less common. We present two cases of atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumours, with the suprasellar location of one case proving to be a diagnostic radiological challenge.
