Abstract

The authors report 8 cases of central neurocytoma with a minimum follow-up of 3 years. Five patients were males and 3 females with average age of 21 years. All patients underwent surgical removal of tumor, and radiotherapy was delivered to 2 of the 3 patients in whom removal had been partial. At an average follow-up of 5 years, all patients are alive and none of them has presented signs of recurrence or progression of the disease. Some typical clinical and histological features of this tumor are pointed out.
