摘要

We describe a case of primary intracranial medulla oblongata germinoma in a 16-year-old girl who presented with progressive headache and blurred vision. Magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated a heterogeneous exophytic mass arising from dorsal aspect of medulla oblongata with extension into fourth ventricle. The differential diagnosis for this patient had included ependymoma, exophytic glioma, medulloblastoma and choroid plexus papilloma. After surgical resection and radiation therapy, she remains alive and recurrence-free for 7 years.
