Angela Mastronuzzi: A review on the main characteristics of neonatal CNS tumours and the recent advances in their treatment

shared on LinkedIn:

“Published with European Journal of Pediatrics: ‘Central nervous system tumours in neonates: what should the neonatologist know?’

Neonatal CNS tumours are rare and differ in their clinical presentation, location, histological characteristics, neuroradiological features, and prognosis from tumours occurring later in childhood. Their prognosis is usually poor above all because of the limited therapeutic options.

The aim of this review was to describe the main characteristics of neonatal CNS tumours and the recent advances in their treatment in order to ensure the essential knowledge that will help neonatologists identify them and create a multidisciplinary team to provide the best possible treatment, while minimising the risk of long-term complications.

The authors thank the ‘Il Coraggio dei Bambini’ Foundation for their support.”
