    Introduction: Alveolar soft part sarcoma is a malignant soft tissue tumor whose metastasis to other organs like lung and brain as a primary presented symptom is not unusual. In the literature there are many reports of metastasis to different parts of brain, but cerebellar metastasis has not been reported yet. In this case study, we discuss a rare occurrence of simultaneous metastasis to brain and cerebellum as a primary presented symptom. Case Report: An 18-year-old woman who was referred due to nausea, vertigo, a severe headache, and blurred vision underwent craniotomy for the resection of brain tumor. Pathologic diagnosis was alveolar soft part sarcoma with metastasis to brain and cerebellum. Conclusion: However, metastasis of this type of sarcoma to cerebellum is considered rare and has not been reported yet.
