Wnt-activated medulloblastoma (MB) confers an excellent prognosis. However, specific treatment strategies for patients with relapsed Wnt-MB are unknown. We report two patients with recurrent beta-catenin nucleopositive Wnt-MB successfully treated by incorporating marrow-ablative chemotherapy and autologous hematopoietic progenitor cell rescue (HDCx/AuHPCR). We also present a review of the literature for previously reported cases of relapsed Wnt-MB. We propose that patients with recurrent Wnt-MB may be treated using a multi-disciplinary approach that includes HDCx/AuHPCR with or without re-irradiation.
