Pediatric Brain Tumors
Whether brain tumors in childhood can be regarded as a districtentity remains a subject of controversy, as in terms of histological and topical aspects altogether there is no significant difference between brain tumors in children and adults. Koos and Miller  put down this insignificant difference (Table 1), comparing their series of 700 pediatric brain tumors with the statistical data on 6000 brain tumors in patients of all ages collected by Ziilch . In terms of histological grading and location, there is no substantial difference between the two age groups.
