Abstract

Chemotherapy is an increasing component of the management of diencephalic gliomas. It can result in tumor shrinkage and significant disease control in some patients. However, decisions concerning the institution of treatmentshould be based on the goals of treatment. Factors include: (1) age of thepatient; (2) whether the child has neurofibromatosis type 1; (3) tumor size and location; (4) the potential sequelae of radiotherapy, and (5) the acute and long-term toxicity of the chemotherapeutic approach utilized. The erratic natural history of diencephalic tumors confounds evaluation of efficacy of the regimen chosen. Copyright (C) 2000 S. Karger AG, Basel.
