  • The most common variants are pilocytic and low-grade astrocytomas, oligodendrogliomas, and mixed oligo-astrocytomas located in the cerebral hemispheres.
  • It may be considered for any pilocytic astrocytoma from which a biopsy has been performed.
  • Based on prospective randomized phase III trials, 50.4 Gy to 54 Gy of conventionally fractionated radiotherapy appears to be a safe and effective regimen with minimal neurotoxicity; 45 Gy may be adequate for biopsied pilocytic astrocytomas.

  • A case of a patient with astrocytoma who showed somnolence and asterixis one month after tumour resection is presented.
  • Although primidone had been prescribed preoperatively for five years and the same dose was maintained after the operation, the serum concentration of the primidone metabolite phenobarbital was elevated and she demonstrated hyperammonemic encephalopathy, which disappeared on withdrawal of the drug.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] [Therapeutic efficacy and prognostic factors in diffuse astrocytomas].
  • Diffuse astrocytomas are slowly growing tumors with a relatively long overall survival.
  • In the present study, we retrospectively analyzed a series of 64 patients with WHO grade II astrocytomas of the cerebral hemispheres.
  • Since the presence of MGMT methylation is a probable indication of an increased sensitivity to alkylating chemotherapeutic agents, determining the methylation status of MGMT could provide a potential basis for logical therapeutic intervention in identifying a subgroup of patients who could be candidates for early chemotherapy.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • (1) Multiple well-demarcated massive enhanced lesions except for the central area, which was accompanied with severe perifocal edema, occurred within the cerebral hemispheres and should be strongly considered in the diagnosis of mass lesions.
  • The initial histopathological diagnosis of the surgical specimen was astrocytoma grade II. (2) Multiple lesions disappeared completely for one and half months after starting medication using steroid.
  • Again, half a month after remission, multiple enhanced lesions without perifocal edema developed in the cerebral and cerebellar hemisphere.
