  • MALIGNANT ASTROCYTOMA FOLLOWING RADIOTHERAPY OF A CRANIOPHARYNGIOMA - CASE-REPORT JOURNAL OF NEUROSURGERY SOGG, R. L., Donaldson, S. S., YORKE, C. H. 1978; 48 (4): 622-627

    Abstract:

    A 9-year-old schoolgirl received 6007 rads to the suprasellar region for craniopharyngioma. Five years later, a malignant astrocytoma developed in the right temporal lobe. We cite clinical and experimental evidence to support our suspicion that the glioma may have been induced by radiation.
