Moreover, histological variants were also added to the previous list (pilomyxoid astrocytoma, anaplastic medulloblastoma, and medulloblastoma with extensive nodularity) whenever evidence of particularities in the age distribution, localization, genetic profile, or clinical behavior is established. The imaging patterns of the novel neoplasms and recently described variants are not fully established, as their description is based on sporadic reports or small case studies [41–46].

AT/RTs are typically heterogeneous; are generally associated with necrosis, hemorrhage, and calcification; and represent hypercellular neoplasms with signs of restricted diffusion. Ependymomas, in turn, are generally located in the fourth ventricle of children and exhibit calcification, hemorrhage, and a typical “plastic behavior” during growth. This growth extends to the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) spaces of the posterior fossa.
