Medulloblastoma (MB) is very rare malignant primary brain tumor in adults and its location at cerebellopontine angle (CPA) is even rarer. There are only few case reports of CPA MBs in literature. Most of them are reported in pediatric age groups which are mostly intraaxial. Only 11 cases of extra-axial CPA MBs have been reported so far. The author is reporting a very rare case of adult extra-axial CPA MBs with multiple intracranial metastases. We are also reviewing clinical and radiological features and unusual way of its presentation along with surgical management. Keeping MBs as one of the differential diagnosis for extra-axial CPA tumors is going to increase our spectrum of diagnosis which can lead to alteration in management.
