Abstract

Glioneuronal tumors are rare primary brain tumors composed of both glial and neuronal elements. In most cases they are benign tumors that are often cured with surgical resection alone. Radiation therapy is sometimes used to treat residual or aggressive tumors. The role of chemotherapy for these tumors is not well defined or is not indicated in most cases. This chapter reviews the available literature on these rare tumors and describes the diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis of each tumor subtype. This chapter aims to serve as a framework for management of these tumors from diagnosis through treatment.
