Primary or metastatic neoplasms of the cerebellum. Tumors in this location frequently present with ataxia or signs of intracranial hypertension due to obstruction of the fourth ventricle. Common primary cerebellar tumors include fibrillary astrocytoma and cerebellar hemangioblastoma. The cerebellum is a relatively common site for tumor metastases from the lung, breast, and other distant organs. (From Okazaki & Scheithauer, Atlas of Neuropathology, 1988, p86 and p141)
