    This book offers in-depth discussion of two types of brain tumors, meningioma and schwannoma, covering diagnosis, therapy, and prognosis. Covers molecular genetics, and such therapeutic methods as neurosurgery, Gamma knife radiosurgery, and adjuvant radiation. Brain tumors cause neurological disorders by either infiltrating normal CNS structures or obstructing CSF pathways and subsequently increasing intracranial pressure [3]. This increase in intracranial pressure results in the early symptoms of brain tumors: headaches, vomiting and lethargy [3]. 60% of all primary brain tumors are glial tumors. Central nervous system (CNS) germ cell tumors (GCTs) represent approximately 3% of primary pediatric brain tumors and encompass a wide pathologic spectrum. CNS GCTs are most commonly located in the pineal and suprasellar regions of the brain and can be divided into major groups including germinomas and nongerminomatous GCTs (NGGCTs), with.

A brain tumor, known as an intracranial tumor, is an abnormal mass of tissue in which cells grow and multiply uncontrollably, seemingly unchecked by the mechanisms that control normal cells. More than different brain tumors have been documented, but the two main groups of brain tumors are termed primary and metastatic.

In the decade since the publication of the Third Series Fascicle on Tumors of the Central Nervous System, many new entities have been described, prognostic significance of certain tumor subtypes established, grading systems revised, and molecular features have been correlated with tumor types and grades.

intracranial compartment, a new growth comprises space, increasing the intracranial pressures.-If it displaces the brain, as is the case of a Meningioma, the mass may consume space proportional to the tumor growth, and in this case, this relatively benign tumor, depending on the location, can be as devastating as a highgrade.

Intracranial neoplasms can be divided into primary and secondary brain tumors. Primary brain tumors arise from the brain, spinal cord, and associated tissues -collectively known as the central nervous system (CNS).
