Abstract

Atipical teratoid rhabdoid tumor (ATRT) is a rare and highly agressive malign tumor in the early childhood. Mean survival has been reported as 6-11 months. Despite the optimal treatment is unclear surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy are the well known treatment options. We would like to report a 4 year old boy who had the diagnosis of ATRT at the temporooccipital region to make a contribution to the literature. © 2014 Turkish Society for Radiation Oncology.
