Neuro-imaging of glioneuronal tumors

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Glioneuronal tumours are rare primary brain tumours composed of both glial and neuronal elements. In most cases, they are benign tumours that are often cured with surgical resection alone. Radiation therapy is sometimes used to treat residual or aggressive tumours. The role of chemotherapy for these tumors is not well defined or is not indicated in most cases. Recently identified molecular markers offer the potential for targeted therapy and personalized medicine. This chapter reviews the available literature on these rare tumours and describes the diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis of each tumour subtype.
