Abstract

There is a sparcity of literature examining the outcomes of those treated for childhood brain tumours using surgery-only. Although several areas of significant long-term problems have been identified, such as deficits in executive functions and raised levels of behavioural and psychological problems, research so far has failed to consistently identify factors that predict outcomes. This makes it very difficult to make recommendations about how to lessen the impact of these cognitive, behavioural and emotional difficulties for this group of children. Nineteen studies that examine cognitive, behavioural and psychological functioning in this population were identified and are reviewed here.
