The first successful treatment of a pediatric brain tumor dates back to 1879. Sir William Macewen, a Scottish surgeon, was the first to perform an intracranial surgical procedure to successfully remove a meningioma from a 14-year-old girl. Upon her death, eight years later, no tumor was found at autopsy, demonstrating that surgical cures of brain tumors were possible.
