Abstract

At the meeting of the New York Neurological Society in March, 1931, one of us (L. S.) described1 two tumors of the cerebellum which we believed were derived from the granular layers and were therefore probably neuroblastomas, since the external granular layer of the cerebellum is composed, as far as we know, only of neuroblasts. These two tumors had been previously classified as medulloblastomas, since they fitted the description of such tumors very well. Since then, we have found another such tumor at Bellevue Hospital and have been enabled by Dr. Karl Rothschild, of New Brunswick, N. J., to study another. Dr. Walter Dandy, of Baltimore, has allowed us to study sections from two other cerebellar tumors which we believe also may be classified in this group. In this paper, therefore, we describe six tumors of the cerebellum which we think should be called neuroblastomas and, since they are
