Abstract

In 2018, the SINch (Italian Society of Neurosurgery) Neuro-Oncology Section, AINO (Italian Association of Neuro-Oncology) and SIN (Italian Association of Neurology) Neuro-Oncology Section formed a collaborative Task Force to look at the diagnosis and treatment of low-grade gliomas (LGGs). The Task Force included neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuro-oncologists, pathologists, radiologists, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, a neuropsychologist and a methodologist. For operational purposes, the Task Force was divided into five Working Groups: diagnosis, surgical treatment, adjuvant treatments, supportive therapies, and follow-up. The resulting guidance document is based on the available evidence and provides recommendations on diagnosis and treatment of LGG patients, considering all aspects of patient care along their disease trajectory.
