Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Eight infants with choroid plexus carcinomas were treated with surgery, prolonged postoperative chemotherapy and delayed radiation. The results suggest that some infants with choroid plexus carcinomas can be successfully treated with multimodality therapy, even allowing children with less than a gross total resection to have prolonged disease-free intervals.
