Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Single cases are described in 50% of reported intracranial metastases. Single cerebral metastasis from colorectal adenocarcinoma is not very common, with a frequency varying between 0.5% and 1%. In our institute between 1960 and 2000, 44 patients affected by single metastasis from colorectal carcinoma were surgically treated. Surgical treatment with postoperative radiant therapy is necessary. These patients show improved quality of life, above all in relation to the maintenance of functional autonomy during the survival period.
