Abstract

ABSTRACT

A HEMANGIOBLASTOMA OF the fourth ventricle was treated with radiosurgery after attempts at surgical resection failed. No change in the size of the lesion has been seen in 2 years of follow-up, and the patient's neurological status remains normal. A brief review of the rationale for conventional radiation therapy and radiosurgery in the management of persistent/recurrent hemangioblastomas is presented.
