Abstract

Pediatric brain tumors are a challenging group of very divergent diseases. Considerable controversy exists concerning the accurate diagnosis and treatment of these patients. Aggressive therapy is often needed to cure aggressive and potentially lethal disease, yet late effects, especially injury to the developing brain, remain a profound problem. The discipline of pediatric neuro-oncology remains one of the most productive areas for continued clinical and basic research because of these and other challenges.
