Atypical teratoid rhabdoid tumors (ATRT) are very rare, aggressive tumors of the central nervous system, occurring mostly in the cerebellum (the part of the brain that controls movement and balance) or the brain stem (the part of the brain that controls basic body functions).
Children with ATRTs are treated at Dana-Farber/Boston Children's through our Brain Tumor Center, a world leader in treating this rare disease. Our brain tumor specialists have extensive expertise in treating all types of neural tumors, including AT/RT.
Find in-depth information on atypical teratoid rhabdoid tumor (ATRT) on the Dana-Farber/Boston Children’s website, including ATRT causes, diagnosis, treatment and latest research.
