  • Look Inside

Ependymomas constitute 6.1 to 12.7 percent of pediatric intracranial neoplasms with a predominance of male patients, younger children and infratentrial involvement. Although there is a generally accepted pathological classification of ependymoma, the prognosis and surgical results of this tumor do not always correlate with the apparant tumor malignancy.

We analyzed 38 ependymomas in children in light of the prognosis and its affecting factors. Thirty-three were intracranial and 5 were intraspinal.
