Abstract

Endocrine alterations are frequently found in patients undergoing treatment for CNS tumors. Careful follow-up aimed at the early detection of recurrences, with life-long monitor of hypothalamus-pituitary (HP) function, will also reveal any endocrine dysfunctions; indeed, their appropriate diagnosis and treatment may determine a significant improvement in the quality of life of these patients.
