Abstract

Infratentorial neoplasms represent a group of tumours, if topographical aspects are primarily considered. These tumours are heterogeneous, however, as regards morphology, treatment and prognosis, as well as partly for aetiology. If clinical data are reported here in summarizing the group of different tumours, the clinical background for this is firstly to demonstrate the different current methods of treatment, their effect and importance, and secondly to give an actual standard for treatment and prognosis.
