Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Glioneuronal tumors are rare primary brain tumors. They are composed of both glial and neuronal elements. In most cases, they are benign tumors that are often cured with surgery. Radiation therapy is sometimes used to treat residual or aggressive tumors. The role of chemotherapy for these tumors is not well defined or not indicated. This chapter reviews the available literature on the use of chemotherapy to treat these tumors and when it may be indicated. A framework for which agents may be of benefit should assist physicians when chemotherapy is needed.
