Malignant Brain Tumors in Children

  • G. Jacobi
  • B. Kornhuber


Among all children suffering from malignant disease brain tumors take the 2nd place: 12–24% after leukemia (31–42%). They are followed by lymphoma (7–13%), neuroblastoma and Wilm’s tumor (8–10% each), and tumors of the bones and the gastrointestinal tract (4–5% each)223, 281, 435.451. Brain tumor incidence shows no differences between white and colored children451.
