Paediatric Neurology Distance Learning

Unit 11 Neuro-oncology

Unit aims:

Neuro-oncology starts with two sections that provide an overview of the epidemiology of central nervous system tumours in childhood and an introduction to tumour biology. The remainder of the unit is more clinically based. Four sections are devoted to the clinical effects of tumours and the methods we use for diagnosis and for surveillance following diagnosis. Four sections deal with management, the neuro-toxic effects of treatments and the late effects which are so important in young people with central nervous system tumours. Paraneoplastic syndromes, principally the Dancing Eye Syndrome, are covered in one section and the unit finishes with an overview of palliative care.
