Abstract

The authors represented a clinical analysis of 3 rd decade male 47 patients with intracranial tumors who had been histologically confirmed after operation and biopsy at the department of neurosurgery of Capital Armed Forces General Hospital From Feb. 1985 to Jan, 1988. We classified the intracranial tumors according to Russell and Rubinstein's classification. The results were as follows: 1) Among the intracranial tumors, gliomas were found most frequently(40.4%), and followed by pituitary adenomas(19.2%), pinealomas(10.6%), osteomas(6.4%), medulloblastomas(4.3%), craniopharyngiomas(4.3%), blood vessel tumors(4.3%). Pituitary adenomas occupied 19.2% of all intracranial tumors and as a single entity these were the highest incidence. 2) Tumors of the pineal region constitutes 10.6% of intracranial tumors. It was relatively high incidence compared with other reports. 3) Intracranial tumors occurred more frequently in supratentorial region(85.1%). The most frequent location was sellar and parasellare region(23.4%), and followed by frontal(14.9%), parietal(12.7%), pineal gland(10.6%), temporal(8.5%), cerebellar region(8.5%) in order. 4) The most common duration of symptoms were within 3 months(42.6%). The main clinical symptoms and signs were headache(80.9%), nausea or/and vomiting(55.3%), papilledema(44.7%), so called symptoms triad of the brain tumor, and other ophthalmic symptoms, gait disturbance, motor dysfunction,cerebellar sign in order.
