CNS atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumor is a disease in which cancerous or malignant cells develop in the tissues of the brain.
CNS or Central nervous system atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumor (AT/RT) is a very unusual, rapidly growing tumor of spinal cord and brain. It generally occurs in children aged 3 years and younger, although it can arise in older children and adults.
About half of these tumors develop in the brain stem or cerebellum. The part of the brain that controls movement, balance and posture is called the cerebellum. The brain stem controls heart rate, breathing and muscles and the nerves used in hearing, seeing, talking, eating and walking. AT/RT may also be found in other parts of the CNS (spinal cord and brain).
