Despite the aggressive nature of the bladder tumor, it was successfully treated with bladder-sparing surgery, adjuvant radiotherapy, and chemotherapy. Conclusions Our case, and review of 8 previously reported cases, suggests that bladder MRT seems to beh...
Myxopapillary ependymomas (MPEs) have an indolent clinical course, corresponding to World Health Organization Grade I.

The aim of this study was to document and characterize time to diagnosis of CNS tumors among children 0 to 17 years of age in a pediatric center. A retrospective chart review was conducted of medical records of children with CNS tumors from 2000 to 2016 in British Columbia, Canada and 148 reports were available for review. Average age at diagnosis was 87.8 mont...
