Abstract

Intracerebral metastases are a serious complication for a significant proportion of cancer patients. Successful management may involve multiple treatments including surgical resection, whole-brain radiotherapy (WBRT), and stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS). We report the successful treatment of a solitary brain metastasis using a combination of surgical resection and SRS at Southeast Missouri Hospital, a community hospital that serves a primarily rural population.
