Primary tumors of the central nervous system are relatively uncommon, comprising only 1%–2% of all neoplasms. However, they constitute the second most common type of malignancy in children (after leukemia) and the leading cause of cancer-related morbidity and mortality in children and young adults worldwide. Globally, there is substantial variability with nearly five-fold difference in incidence between various parts of the world. Brain tumors are quite heterogeneous with regard to histology, biological behavior, and prognosis mandating multidisciplinary therapeutic decision-making. This retrospective audit of all consecutive patients registered in a single calendar year (2013) in the neuro-oncology disease management group at Tata Memorial Centre is reflective of the ground reality and fair representation of outcomes in routine neuro-oncologic practice.
