Tumor below the tentorium .
The main pathological types at first sight constitute a rather bewildering array of which the following is a suggested classification:-
1. Cerebellar Gliomas.
Medulloblastoma.
Astrocytoma.
Ependymoma.
Haemangioblastoma.
2. Brain Stem Gliomas.
Astrocytoma.
Spongioblastoma Polare.
3. Cerebello-Pontine Angle Tumours.
Acoustic Neurofibroma.
Fifth Sensory Root Neurofibroma.
Meningioma.
Ependymoma.
4.Chronic Granulomas.
Tuberculoma.
Gumma.
whole,the subtentorial gliomas are predominantly tumours of childhood and early adult life. Indeed, the only common subtentorial tumouroccurringover the age of thirty is the acoustic neurofibroma.
