Abstract

This chapter focuses on the therapeutic strategies for patients with gliomas other than surgery (Chap. 6) and radiotherapy (Chap. 7). It deals with gliomas of all WHO grades and details the primary treatment as well as therapeutic options at recurrence. Chemotherapy is used at recurrence after surgery and radiotherapy, in combination with radiotherapy or as the first treatment after the histological diagnosis has been achieved, prior to radiotherapy.
