Sir, – Atypical teratoid rhabdoid tumor (AT/RT) is a rare tumor that predominates in infancy. It is an aggressive tumor with dismal outcome. We report a case of AT/ RT in a 44-year-old female who presented with headache. The tumor was localized in the right occipital lobe. Gross total resection, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy were administered, and the patient is alive 9 months since diagnosis with no evidence of disease.
