Pediatric low-grade glioma epidemiology.

Pediatric Low-Grade Glioma Classification.

see Pediatric low grade glioma treatment.

The determinants of outcomes for adult survivors of pediatric low grade glioma (PLGG) are largely unknown.

Pediatric LGG patients have a high survival rate; 90–95 % will be alive 10 years after diagnosis 1) 2).

This high overall survival includes many patients with residual tumor, and some of these tumors never grow once they have been diagnosed. Nevertheless low grade glioma can cause significant morbidity in combination with treatment-related late effects. It is increasingly acknowledged that pediatric LGG is often a chronic disease.
