Left Cystic Cerebellar Tumor

SKU: C02028

This exhibit includes four brain illustrations that compare a normal brain to a brain with a cystic cerebellar tumor. The normal circulation of CSF begins with its production by modified ependymal cells in the choroid plexus, around blood vessels, and along ventricular walls. CSF then circulates through the lateral ventricles, the third ventricle, the fourth ventricle, the median aperture, the lateral apertures, and the subarachnoid space surrounding the spinal cord and brain. A cystic cerebellar tumor causes compression of the midbrain and cerebellum. The cerebral aqueduct is compressed, preventing CSF circulation and causing it to accumulate in the ventricles. The CSF migrates into the brain tissue as the pressure within the ventricles rises. Fluid causes brain tissue to swell, limiting blood supply to the brain. As a result, oxygen deprivation and swelling occur.
