48 It is directed from medial to laterally, slightly from superior to inferior and from posterior to anterior, forming an angle of approximately 45 degrees with the sagittal plane. The lateral recess presents an anterior, superior, and posterior wall; and a floor. The anterior and superior walls are constituted by the inferior cerebellar peduncle as it runs upward and then turns backward toward the white matter of the cerebellum. The floor of the lateral recess is constituted by the tela choroidea anteriorly, the choroid plexus in the middle, and the inferior medullary velum posteriorly; at the foramen of Luschka, the inferior medullary velum becomes thicker and is called the peduncle of the flocculus.

The superior, the medial, the anterior, the posterior, and most of the lateral surfaces of the tonsils are free and can be separated easily from the adjacent structures. The tonsils, along with surrounding neural structures, determine important spaces: between its superior pole and the inferior medullary velum is the supratonsillar space; between the medial surfaces of the two tonsils is the vallecula; between the anterior surface of the tonsil and the medulla is the cerebellomedullary fissure; between the posterior surface of the tonsil and the adjacent vermis is the retrotonsilar space where the inferior vermian veins originate (Fig.
