The pathobiology of medulloblastoma is reviewed in light of emerging data regarding its immunocytochemical and cytobiologic, as well as molecular biologic, characteristics. The nature of the lesion, particularly its nosologic relation to primitive neuroectodermal tumor, is discussed, as is its place in the World Health Organization classification of tumors of the central nervous system.
