Meningiomas represent one of the largest subgroups of intracranial tumors. They are generally benign, but may show a histological progression to malignancy. Grades II and III meningiomas have been less well studied and are not well controlled because of their aggressive behaviour and recurrences. There is no consensus on therapeutic strategies and no(More)
This work was conducted by the French Brain Tumor Data Bank (FBTDB) and aims to prospectively record all primary central nervous system tumors (PCNST), in France, for which histological diagnosis is available. Results concerning children are presented. This study analyzes the childhood cases (0–19 years) of newly diagnosed and histologically confirmed PCNST(More)
This work aims to prospectively record all primary central nervous system tumors (PCNST), in France, for which histological diagnosis is available. The objectives are to create a national registry and a network to perform epidemiological studies, to implement clinical and basic research protocols, and to harmonize the healthcare of patients affected by(More)
The left dominant insula was recently described as an essential area of speech, inducing definitive language disturbances when injured. We describe a patient with mild dysphasia, harboring a left insular glioma. A functional MRI found activations within the left inferior and middle frontal gyri, superior temporal gyrus, basal ganglia, but not in the insula.(More)
This work aimed to prospectively record all primary central nervous system tumor (PCNST) cases in France, for which histological diagnosis is available. The objectives were to (i) create a national registry and a network to perform epidemiological studies; (ii) implement clinical and basic research protocols; and (iii) harmonize the health care of patients(More)
BACKGROUND The most-used prognostic scheme for malignant gliomas included only patients aged 18 to 70 years. The purpose of this study was to develop a prognostic model for patients ≥70 years of age with newly diagnosed glioblastoma. METHODS A total of 437 patients ≥70 years of age with newly diagnosed glioblastoma, pooled from 2 tertiary academic(More)
Adult human and rodent brains contain neural stem and progenitor cells, and the presence of neural stem cells in the adult rodent spinal cord has also been described. Here, using electron microscopy, expression of neural precursor cell markers, and cell culture, we investigated whether neural precursor cells are also present in adult human spinal cord. In(More)
OBJECT The spontaneous prognostic factors and optimal therapeutic strategy for WHO Grade II gliomas (GIIGs) have yet to be unanimously defined. Specifically, the role of resection is still debated, most notably because the actual amount of resection has seldom been assessed. METHODS Cases of GIIGs treated before December 2007 were extracted from a(More)
OBJECTIVE Seizure is the presenting symptom in most of World Health Organization grade II gliomas (GIIGs). Rarely, a GIIG is discovered incidentally on imaging. Little is known about the natural course and prognosis of incidental GIIGs. The aim of the present study is to characterize their natural history and to investigate whether their clinical and(More)
