Improved survival in the largest national cohort of adults with cerebellar versus supratentorial low-grade astrocytomas.

Improved survival in the largest national cohort of adults with cerebellar versus supratentorial low-grade astrocytomas.

Conclusions Taken together, adults with cerebellar WHO Grade I and II astrocytomas have a much more favorable survival curve than those with similar supratentorial tumors. Research demonstrates that the primary driver of this phenomenon is the improved survival in patients with cerebellar Grade II gliomas.
