Abstract

The atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumour (ATRT) is a rare type of central nervous system tumour appearing usually under 2 years of age. The survival of patients is insufficient despite the combined treatment (neurosurgical removal, intensive chemo- and radiotherapy). ATRT recurs one year after completion of treatment in 60% of cases. Maintaining appropriate nutritional status during treatment is of great importance in this young age group. Nutritional treatment of patients with ATRT is especially difficult due to young age and possible neurological sequelae. A successful case of a three-month-old female infant is presented, with special emphasis on the importance of feeding therapy.
