We describe the dental findings and therapeutic management of a child aged three years and eight months with medulloblastoma treated by surgical resection at age eight months followed by 20 months of chemotherapy. Thin and short roots of the primary molars were observed, as were microdontia and anodontia of the premolars. The boy suffered from severe early childhood caries (ECC). Dental treatment was carried out under general anesthesia. Follow-up examinations at three, six and twelve months after the initial dental treatment revealed healthy gingival tissue and no new caries. The boy passed away before the next scheduled follow-up dental examination.
