BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Radiation-induced cerebral cavernous malformation reflects post-irradiation impairment of cerebral microcirculation. Our purpose was to determine effects of radiation field size and dose on the extent of developing cavernous malformations in long-term survivors of intracranial germ cell tumors (GCTs). METHODS The study involved 34… CONTINUE READING
