Central nervous system
Central nervous system tumours account for 2–5% of all tumours in man. The incidence is higher among the white races than among Negroes. The sex ratio is about 1 : 1 for most histological types. Central nervous system (CNS) tumours occur at all ages. There is a peak incidence of glial tumours in childhood; they rank first among solid tumours before puberty. Certain mesenchymal tumours have a familial tendency. Lesions of other organs (retina, viscera) are often associated with haemangioblastoma. The role of trauma is debatable.
