A case of extra‐axial spread of a “classical” medulloblastoma in a 46‐year‐old man is presented. The clinical course, rationale for therapy, and autopsy findings are presented in detail. A review of the literature reveals only 22 previously proven cases. Patterns of metastasis are discussed and compared to other CNS tumors. The importance of earlier clinical recognition is emphasized.
