    ABSTRACT: Aim: The aim of this study was to specify the various computed tomography aspects of the intracranial tumors of the child. Equipment and method: It was about a retrospective study carried out in 30 children (15 boys and 15 girls) aged from 3 to 15 years (medium age 8.3 years). All the patients were explored with the computed tomography scan. Sixteen lesions profited from an anatomopathologic analysis for which an anatomoradiologic correlation was obtained. Results: The scanner objectified a cerebral tumor in all the cases. Topography was supratentorial in 19 cases (64%) and 11 cases (36%) were under tentorial. Almost all the tumors were single (96% of the cases) and were well limited (80% of the cases). The tumors were mixed in 50% of the cases with the presence of calcification in 66% of the cases. They were characterized by their large size (3 at 8 cm) in 86% of the cases. The etiologies of the tumors were dominated by glioma in 50% of the cases and as a whole, the radio-histological correlation was good (87.5%). Conclusion: Glial tumors are most frequent in the child. Computer-aided tomography scan represents here the focus of intracranial tumors diagnosis in the child. It must be carried out as a clinical suspicion to improve the diagnosis of these tumors.
