Abstract

Based on the data published since 1982 and on additional data from the authors, this retrospective analysis compares four different therapeutic approaches in the treatment of central neurocytoma: complete resection (n = 108), complete resection plus radiotherapy (n = 30), incomplete resection (n = 74), and incomplete resection plus radiotherapy (n = 98). The data suggest that complete resection leads to significantly better local control and survival than incomplete resection. After incomplete resection, patients benefit from postoperative radiotherapy.
