Intracranial calcification in survivors of childhood medulloblastoma.


Computerised tomography scans of the brain have been performed on 5 children who have survived at least 5 years after treatment with surgery and radiotherapy for medulloblastoma. Intracranial calcification of varying degrees of the basal ganglia and of the frontal and parietal cortex was detected in the 3 children who were irradiated under age 5 years.
