Abstract

Medulloblastoma with myogenic differentiation (MMD) is a rare and aggressive variant of medulloblastoma, occurring predominantly in children. There have been only two case reports of long-term survival previously published. We report a case of long-term disease-free survival in a 21-year-old diagnosed with MMD.
