Abstract Objectives: Children diagnosed with posterior fossa tumor are
susceptible to neuromuscular and musculoskeletal impairments. This study
was designed to address postural stability affection in those children.
Methods: Sixty children treated for posterior fossa tumor in maintenance
phase aged from five to twelve years were participated in this study.
Postural stability was assessed using HUMAC balance and tilt system to
assess both Static and dynamic balance. Results: There was a significant
difference in postural stability in children with posterior fossa tumor
as compared to HUMAC balance and tilt system tests’ norms. Conclusion:
From the obtained study it can be concluded that there is an affection
of postural stability in children with posterior fossa tumor. Periodic
evaluation along the course of treatment could identify specific
impaired motor domains providing the base for a successful
rehabilitation program. Keywords: Posterior fossa tumor,
