Abstract

One hundred twenty-five patients with glioma were treated with post-operative irradiation between 1983 and 1993. Nineteen patients were excluded from evaluation because of incomplete irradiation schedule. Twenty-eight patients lost to follow up. Only seventy-eight patients (about 62.4 %) were evaluable for survival. Twenty-three patients (about 29.5%) were low-grade gliomas, the median survival of this group was 41 months. Twenty-eight patients were anaplastic gliomas (about 35.9%), the median survival was 19 months. Twenty-seven patients (about 34.6%) were Glioblastomas multiforme, the median survival was 7.6 months. The study showed that histologic grading of glioma was the one significant prognostic factor on survival.
