Résumé: Introduction Cerebellar glioblastoma is an uncommon adult lesion. The pathogeny and prognosis of cerebellar glioblastoma are still incompletely elucidated. Case presentation We report the case of a 19-year-old Moroccan woman. A neurologic examination revealed the presence of cerebellar signs. A diagnosis of cerebellar glioblastoma is rarely made before surgery. An encephalic computer tomography scan and magnetic resonance imaging increased the accuracy of defining the nature of the lesion. Magnetic resonance imaging showed a heterogeneously enhancing mass in the vermis and the right cerebellar hemisphere. After surgery, glioblastoma was histologically confirmed. Post-operative radiotherapy followed. The outcome of our patient was favorable after one year of follow-up. Conclusions We report an unusual case of cerebellar gliobastoma. Cerebellar glioblastoma multiforme should be considered in the differential diagnosis of a cerebellar mass lesion.
