PMID: 31836907.


The most common primary CNS tumor in children is the medulloblastoma, which generally occurs in the posterior fossa and can spread through the CNS and spinal cord. Although the recurrence of renal cell carcinoma as a secondary tumor to neuroblastoma has been reported with successful anti-neoplastic treatment, the rare occurrence of a child who initially had medulloblastoma and then developed translocation renal cell carcinoma has never been reported before.
