BACKGROUND To study the survival outcome and neurotoxicity grades in patients of high-grade glioma (HGG) treated with conformal radiation and temozolamide. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty-six patients of HGG received conformal post operative radiation and temozolamide in the period 2003 to 2007. Twenty seven patients had near total resection, 17 had subtotal resection and 2 had biopsy only. 33 patients (71.7%) were treated with IMRT and 13 (28.3%) received 3DCRT (conformal radiation). Median dose… CONTINUE READING
