  • Medulloblastoma Incidence has not Changed Over Time A CBTRUS Study JOURNAL OF PEDIATRIC HEMATOLOGY ONCOLOGY Partap, S., Curran, E. K., Propp, J. M., Le, G. M., Sainani, K. L., Fisher, P. G. 2009; 31 (12): 970-971

    Abstract:

    Earlier studies have reported changes in the incidence of medulloblastoma (MB) but have conflicted, likely because of small sample size or misclassification of MB with primitive neuroectodermal tumor (PNET). The incidence of MB and PNET from 1985 to 2002 was determined from the Central Brain Tumor Registry of the United States, a large population-based cancer registry, using strict histologic and site codes. No statistically significant change in MB incidence was observed over the last 2 decades, but there was an increase in MB and PNET combined.
