A rare embryonal brain tumor has been diagnosed in a 4-year-old boy. The mass, located at the pons and mesencephalon, has been histologically classified as an embryonal tumor containing abundant neuropil and true rosettes. After surgical complete removal of the neoplasia, the child received intensive combined chemotherapy and radiotherapy. He is alive and free of disease at 34 months from surgery. Difficulties in histological definition, possible suggestions for treatment proposals are discussed.
