Supratentorial Tumors

Cerebral tumors are less common than tumors of the posterior fossa in children. The imaging appearance of the lesion does not always correlate to the histologic grade. Approximately 25% of pediatric brain tumors arise in the parasellar region, accounting for nearly half of all supratentorial tumors.
