We report a large series of brain-stem tumors seen during 18 years of at our hospital. We diagnosed and treated a total of 42 patients between 1988 and 2006; 36 of them were operated with partial resection in most cases. Brain-stem tumors constitute a rare condition with very bad prognosis. A surgical complete resection of the mass is not possible in most(More)
