Brain Stem Tumors Overview:

 

  • Brain stem gliomas are one of the most common tumors in this region.

  • They account for about 20% of intracranial tumors in children.

  • Symptoms typically begin with cranial nerve palsy and hydrocephalus (resulting for example in double vision, headache, nausea and vomiting).

  • Treatment for brain stem tumors typically includes radiation and cerebrospinal fluid diversion (third ventriculostomy vs. shunt placement).
