  • 52 pediatric patients were treated with radiosurgery at the University of California, San Francisco. Arteriovenous malformations were treated in 27 patients. Complete obliteration was noted in 4 of 12 patients imaged more than 2 years after radiosurgery. Arteriovenous malformation rebleed was noted in 1 patient. Symptomatic T2 changes were noted in 2 patients. Among 29 neoplasms treated in 25 patients, local control was noted in 5 of 7 low-grade gliomas, 5 of 14 high-grade gliomas, 4 of 5 craniopharyngiomas and 3 of 3 sarcomas. Three patients treated for neoplasms developed necrosis after radiosurgery.
