Pediatric Brainstem Gliomas: A Retrospective Study of 180 Patients from the SEER Database


Large population-based studies are needed to assess the epidemiology and survival risk factors associated with pediatric brainstem gliomas. This retrospective study explores factors that may influence survival in this population. Utilizing the SEER database, the authors retrospectively assessed survival in histologically confirmed brainstem gliomas in patients aged 17 and younger. Survival was described with Kaplan-Meyer curves and multivariate regression analysis.
