Midbrain tumors occur in the mesencephalon, pons or medulla oblongata, and because of their deep location in the brain, are typically inoperable. The tumors can be benign or malignant as well as primary or metastatic. Symptoms of a midbrain tumor include vision impairment, ataxia, nausea and hemiparesis. Types of tumors that have been seen in the midbrain are gliomas, hemangioblastomas, gangliogliomas, and ependymomas. Midbrain tumors occur more frequently in children, and if they are malignant, often do not have a good prognosis. If surgery is not possible, treatments are typically either radiation therapy or chemotherapy.
