Author(s): Ushio Hanai, Tadashi Akamatsu, Megumi Kobayashi, Yotaro Tsunoda, Kenichi Hirabayashi, Tanehumi Baba, Hideki Atsumi, Mitsunori Matsumae

Journal:

 

The prognosis of malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor (MPNST) with neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF-1) is worse than that of a solitary MPNST, because of the tumor size and location difficult to resect completely. We experienced a case of MPNST in the occipital region with NF-1.

Survival meta-analyses for >1800 malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor patients with and without neurofibromatosis type 1.
 

Author(s): Matthias Kolberg, Maren Høland, Trude H Agesen, Helge R Brekke, Knut Liestøl, Kirsten S Hall, Fredrik Mertens, Piero Picci, Sigbjørn Smeland, Ragnhild A Lothe

Journal: Neuro-oncology. 2013 Feb;15(2):135-47.

 

There are conflicting reports as to whether malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor (MPNST) patients with neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) have worse prognosis than non-NF1 MPNST patients. Large clinical studies to address this problem are lacking due to the rareness of MPNST. We have ...
