Abstract

Developments in imaging and in neurosurgical techniques over the pastdecade have substantially altered the management of children with low-grade astrocytoma, Indications for surgery have become more clearly defined, and a larger proportion of children undergo complete or subtotal resection than in the past. Fewer receive adjuvant therapy, even though the options in this regard are more numerous now and theoretically likely to result in less morbidity than conventional external beam radiotherapy. This review will address in particular the correlations between location, imaging appearance, and behavior that need to be morewidely appreciated, and present recommendations regarding the management of these tumors.
