Abstract

Ependymoma accounts for 5% to 10% of all brain in the paediatric age group. The mainstay of the treatment is surgery followed by radiotherapy. The primary site remains the most common site (85%) for the recurrences followed by the metastatic disease (25%). Here we present a case report of a 5 year old male child who presented as an operated case of ependymoma and was treated with localized radiation therapy. After a disease free interval of one year the child relapsed in the brain and spine. He was re operated for the brain lesion and then was taken up for cranio spinal irradiation. This was followed by systemic chemotherapy. The follow up scans should complete resolution of the disease in the brain and the spine. Hence, longer follow up is needed to appreciate the long term effectiveness and toxicity of this treatment protocol.
