INTRODUCTION: Glioblastoma is the most frequent and malignant of the brain tumours. However, it is exceptionally observed in the cerebellum. CLINICAL CASE: A case of a 42 year old woman with a short history of gait disturbance and headache is reported. A MRI brain scan showed a 4 cm diameter, solid and cystic tumour with edema in the right cerebellum. Surgery removed a glioblastoma multiforme with a positive p53. CONCLUSIONS: Age and positive p53 indicate that it is a secondary form. Bibliography certifies that it is an infrequent location. Initial treatment is surgery, but survival is short in spite of radiotherapy and chemotherapy with temozolamide.

Keywords : Glioblastoma; Protein p53; Posterior fossa tumour; Cerebellum tumour.
