Recurrent Childhood Visual Pathway Glioma
Treatment for recurrent disease depends on the type of tumor, whether the tumor comes back in the same place or in another part of the brain, and the treatment that was given before.
If possible, the tumor may be removed during surgery. Radiation therapy may be given, especially if it was not given before. Chemotherapy may be used, and clinical trials are evaluating new chemotherapy drugs.
Check for U.S. clinical trials from NCI's PDQ Cancer Clinical Trials Registry that are now accepting patients with recurrent childhood visual pathway glioma. For more specific results, refine the search by using other search features, such as the location of the trial, the type of treatment, or the name of the drug. General information about clinical trials is available from the NCI Web site.
