CONTEXT Medulloblastomas (MBs) and atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumors (AT/RTs) arising in infants and children can be difficult to distinguish; however, histologic characterization is prognostically important. OBJECTIVE To determine histologic and phenotypic markers associated with utility with progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS) in children younger than 3 years with MBs and AT/RTs. DESIGN We undertook a histologic and immunophenotypic study of MBs and AT/RTs arising in… CONTINUE READING
