Do we need whole brain irradiation in multifocal or multicentric high-grade cerebral gliomas? Review of cases and the literature

Abstract

Sir: High-grade cerebral gliomas (HGCG) are known to have a rather poorer prognosis than lower grade neoplasms. In most cases, local relapse connotes an adverse patient prognosis [1]. Improved brain tumor imaging and failure patterns after radiotherapy (RT) have shown that the most common areas for recurrence in HGCGs are within or closely adjacent to the… (More)
