abstract

  • Survival for adult medulloblastoma was comparable to its pediatric counterpart. In patients with localized disease at presentation, gender (favoring female patients) and age (favoring older patients) were important prognostic factors for posterior fossa control and survival. In patients with disseminated disease at presentation, the prognosis is poor, and innovative therapy is needed to improve survival.
