Pineal Region Tumors

Guest Editors: Andrew T. Parsa, Jeffrey N. Bruce

Tumors of the pineal region are a challenging clinical entity that comprises a wide range of pathology. The advent of modern neurosurgical techniques, advanced preoperative imaging, endoscopy, and neuronavigation have dramatically improved the outcomes of surgically treated patients. In this issue of Neurosurgery Clinics of North America, the authors provide us with an excellent foundation for health care providers to build on. Historical elements relevant to the evolving management of pineal region tumor patients are discussed, followed by excellent reviews addressing the pathology, preoperative workup, radiosurgical, and surgical approaches to treatment. Outcomes for some of the most common pineal region tumors are elaborated on as well. Collectively we hope this issue serves as a guide for providers to develop a better understanding of these complex tumors.
