The authors report four very rare radiation-associated tumors (or radiation-induced tumors; RITs) of the central nervous system (CNS) and review the literature on this topic. The purpose of this study was to determine the possible relationship between the harmful effects of radiation therapy, the shortest and the longest interval between the time of(More)
BACKGROUND The ETR that should be undertaken in patients with GBM remains controversial.
