Gliomas that arise in the brain stem have been associated with a poor prognosis. Diagnostic neuroimaging readily identifies the tumor as it extends between normal brainstem structures. Histologic sampling of tumor with stereotactic methods is notoriously unreliable in establishing a definitive prognosis. Clinical trials that incorporate high-dose chemotherapy, autologous bone marrow rescue, and irradiation hold promise of better tumor control by overcoming the inaccessibility of the central… CONTINUE READING
