Pineal tumors. A 53-year experience.

Abstract

Thirty-four patients with pathologically confirmed primary pineal tumors were evaluated at the Mayo Clinic from 1923 through 1976. All tumors were of germ cell or pineal cell origin. Most patients were adolescent boys with subacute increased intracranial pressure and Parinaud's syndrome. Hypothalamic symptoms were surprisingly infrequent. Direct surgical intervention was associated with high mortality, but has been more successful in recent years.
