Atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumor may arise at any central nervous system location, but it is most commonly located in the cerebellum(60 percent). The incidence of this tumor remains unclear but it occurs most commonly in children less than 2 years of age. This highly malignant tumor shows a rapid progression and nonspecific radiologic findings. We report a case of primary intracranial atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumor arising from the supratentorial area in early infancy. The diagnosis was made based on distinctive light microscopy and immunohistochemical findings. Despite aggressive surgical treatment with adjuvant chemotherapy, he died six months after his second operation.
Key Words: Atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumor , Supratentorium
