Lire cet article en français

Takeaway

  • Spinal meninges location is predictive of increased survival in central nervous system (CNS) solitary fibrous tumors (SFT) and hemangiopericytomas (HPC; versus brain and other CNS including cranial nerves) while regional poverty level and age were associated with decreased survival.

Why this matters

  • This study indicates that a previously unreported tumor feature, spinal location, is an important predictor of survival in SFTs/HPCs of the CNS.
