Medulloblastoma is the most common brain tumor in children. Surgical gross total resection followed by irradiation and chemotherapy are the treatment modalities. Medulloblastomas are very aggressive tumors (WHO Grade IV) and recurrences are common even after adequate recommended treatment. Most of the recurrences occur within 2 years. Spinal seeding is common; however, seeding into the supratentorial compartment is rare in adults. We report here two such cases with supratentorial seeding. In one of our patient, there was local recurrence and spinal seeding as well and the other developed cerebellar mutism which also is rare in adults.
