Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Glioblastoma is rather uncommon in children, accounting for less than 5% of all paediatric brain tumours. Recent large sample size cohorts have clearly shown that extent of resection and adjuvant chemotherapy and radiotherapy impact survival. Unfortunately, this may not be the practice in a real world setting, especially in low-middle income countries (LMIC). The aim of this review is to summarize and highlight important findings from studies on paediatric glioblastoma.
