Abstract

Medulloblastoma (MB) is the most common malignant brain tumor in children, where one-third of patients succumb to their disease. This SnapShot describes the classification of MB subgroups, historically by histopathology and currently based on genomic information. Genomics-based classification has identified four major subgroups and provides greater opportunity for developing targeted therapies more successful than current conventional therapy.
