Abstract

Primary brain tumors are the most common solid neoplasms of childhood. The diagnosis of brain tumors in the general pediatric population remains challenging. Nevertheless, it is clear that refinements in imaging, surgical technique, and adjunctive therapies have led to longer survival and an improving quality of life in children with brain tumors.
