AbstractCentral nervous system (CNS) neoplasms comprise a heterogeneous group of malignancies and nonmalignancies that occur primarily in the brain, but also in other intracranial and intraspinal sites (1,2). Differences in biological characteristics, clinical presentation, and distribution of CNS tumors by morphology, grade, and location within the brain (3,4) suggest that etiology and progression are different for children than for adults. Regardless of age at diagnosis, however, etiology of CNS cancer remains largely undetermined.
