Abstract

There are no controlled, prospective clinical trials of treatment using surgical versus nonsurgical management of posterior fossa mass lesions. The available data support rapid evacuation of posterior fossa mass lesions that 1) show CT evidence of mass effect, or 2) result in progressive neurological dysfunction. Moreover, data support expectant management with serial imaging for select cases in which there is neurological stability and no radiological evidence for mass effect.
