Following presentation of the protocol, comments from several discussants included diagnoses of a primary neoplastic process in the brain stem, angioma of the pons, neoplasm or cyst of the posterior fossa, possible angioma on the left side of the brain stem, a viral cerebellitis, an ependymoma, or a medulloblastoma. Together with the case presentation the author offers autopsy findings and a discussion and review of the literature.
