Fifty-seven cases of histologically confirmed cerebral oligodendroglioma treated at the Cleveland Clinic between 1950 and 1980 were reviewed. No difference in the 5-year survival rate was seen in patients treated with postoperative radiation therapy vs. operation alone. These data are compared to previously published series with special emphasis on the role of radiation therapy.
