  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

 Brain tumors in infants and children are different from those in adults in type and location of tumor as well as accompanying complication. Given this fact, and the fact that these patients are under development, careful consideration is required for determination of treatment planning. Thus, we have investigated the curative results of brain tumors in infants and children and factors effecting prognosis.

 In this study, medulloblastoma which is one of the most malignant pediatric brain tumors was analyzed in 64 cases in light of mode of metastasis and prognosis.
