Abstract Between 1988 and 1997, 28 children have had iodine-125 implants for CNS tumors performed in our institution. Ten had stereotactic implantation in the brain stem region, and nine had the diagnosis of brain stem glioma (8 diffuse pontine, 1 midbrain tumor). Their ages ranged from 1.8 to 12 years. All patients had histological confirmation of malignancy (7 high-grade glioma, 2 low-grade glioma, 1 PNET). Diffuse pontine glioma patients received external beam radiation (50 Gy) followed by a… CONTINUE READING
