Brain Stem Gliomas

These are Tumours that form in the brain stem, the part of the brain connected to the spinal cord. They are often high-grade. Brain stem gliomas that are high-grade or spread widely throughout the brain stem are difficult to treat successfully. To prevent damage to healthy brain tissue, brain stem glioma is usually diagnosed without a biopsy.


Treatment of brain stem gliomas may include the following:

1. Hyperfractionated radiation therapy.

2. A clinical trial of new anticancer drugs and/or biologic therapy.
