We report two cases of radiation-induced intracranial tumours after treatment for medulloblastoma presenting in children with nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome. These cases illustrate the need for judicious use of post-operative radiotherapy as secondary tumors are commonly reported. This is particularly important as the initial tumour in this cohort is of the ‘less aggressive’ desmoplastic subtype.
