Medulloblastoma in a case of migraine-like headache with head tilt: a case report

This is the case of a 7-year-old girl with a history of migraine headaches who presented with a head tilt to the left and worsening headaches. Papilloedema was found on ophthlamoscopy. She had an intermittent history of migraine-type headaches for the past year. Oral naproxen 375 mg twice daily provided some relief of the headaches initially but they slowly worsened and head tilt appeared. A medulloblastoma was diagnosed on computed tomography and the histology was confirmed at surgical resection. There was no evidence of metastatic spread. The patient was given radiotherapy and chemotherapy and was tumor free at 6 months.
