In 2018 the SINch (Italian Society of Neurosurgery) Neuro-Oncology section, AINO (Italian Association of Neuro-Oncology) and SIN (Italian Association of Neurology) Neuro-Oncology section formed a collaborative Task Force to look at the diagnosis and treatment of low-grade gliomas (LGGs). The Task Force included neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuro-oncologists, pathologists, radiologists, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, a neuropsychologist and a methodologist. For operational purposes, the Task Force was divided into 5 Working Groups: diagnosis, surgical treatment, adjuvant treatments, supportive therapies, and follow-up. The resulting guidance document is based on the available evidence and provides recommendations on diagnosis and treatment of LGG patients, considering all aspects of patient care along their disease trajectory.

Abstract

In 2018 the SINch (Italian Society of Neurosurgery) Neuro-Oncology section, AINO (Italian Association of Neuro-Oncology) and SIN (Italian Association of Neurology) Neuro-Oncology section formed a collaborative Task Force to look at the diagnosis and treatment of low-grade gliomas (LGGs). The Task Force included neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuro-oncologists, pathologists, radiologists, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, a neuropsychologist and a methodologist. For operational purposes, the Task Force was divided into 5 Working Groups: diagnosis, surgical treatment, adjuvant treatments, supportive therapies, and follow-up. The resulting guidance document is based on the available evidence and provides recommendations on diagnosis and treatment of LGG patients, considering all aspects of patient care along their disease trajectory.
