Guidelines Summary

Specific treatment regimens are dictated by the most current therapeutic protocols available for the treatment of medulloblastoma. In North America, the standard of care generally follows treatment regimens from the Children’s Oncology Group.

In the United Kingdom, the Children’s Brain Tumour Research Centre produced the Diagnosis of Brain Tumours in Children guideline, which was accredited by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence. A summary of the guideline for healthcare professionals covers diagnosis, presenting symptoms of brain tumors in children by subspecialty, and when to refer for further assessment, imaging, or treatment.
