Medulloblastoma is one of the most common primitive neuroectodermal tumors at pediatric age. It is usually located at fourth ventricle originated from vermis. Pontocerebellar angle medulloblastomas are rare and are mostly localized intraaxially. It can be confused with other tumors such as meningioma and schwannoma which are usually seen at this zone. In this report, a 16-year-old girl having medulloblastoma located at the pontocerebellar angle extraaxially and mimicking as meningioma was presented.
