Brainstem gliomas in adults
Brainstem gliomas are a very heterogeneous group of tumors, but are often quite aggressive and difficult to treat, with relatively short survival times. Surgical resection of brainstem gliomas can be performed in selective focal tumors. For more diffuse tumors, resection is impossible, and a biopsy is preferred. In many cases of diffuse pontine tumors, MRI can be diagnostic.
