Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In recent years, the incidence of intracranial tumors has been on the rise. Brain tumors refer to a collection of neoplasms, each with its own biology, prognosis, and treatment, which can originate from the brain, meninges, nerves, blood vessels, and brain accessories, or be formed by the invasion of other tissues or organs into the brain. Common treatments include chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and surgery.

This Special Issue will cover, but not be limited to diagnosis, treatment, and management of brain tumors in children and adults; you are welcome to contribute your latest research to facilitate communication in the field, in the form of articles and reviews.

Dr. Pietro Spennato
Dr. Lorenzo Ugga
