SUMMARY: Rosai-Dorfman disease (RDD), or sinus histiocytosis with massive cervical lymphadenopathy, occurs mostly in children and young adults. RDD extremely rarely affects the infratentorial region, without involvement of other anatomical structures. We report a case of a 36-year old woman with isolated RDD in the cerebellum. Clinical features were presented with a neocerebellar syndrome. Brain MRI showed a lesion with varying density, located in the left cerebellar hemisphere. No extracranial lesions were detected, The patient was operated on, and recovery was full. Microscopically, the process presented with lymphoplasmatic and multinucleate histiocytic infiltration. The prognosis is good.
Key words: Rosai-Dorfman disease. cerebellar tumor, surgery.
