Tumors of the central nervous system. Improvement in outcome through a multimodality approach

Academic Article


  • This article reviews the roles of surgery, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy in the treatment of children with brain tumors and demonstrates how improvements in therapy have resulted from academic center-based multimodality care. The consequences of a brain tumor and its treatment are also reviewed, highlighting the need for a comprehensive medical team including neurologists, neuropsychologists, and endocrinologists to be involved in the care of all children with brain tumors.
