Gliomas are the most common CNS tumours in children and present either as circumscribed tumours or diffusely infiltrative neoplasms. Diffuse gliomas develop both in the cerebral hemispheres and the brainstem and have a poor prognosis. Guidelines for the therapy of these tumours are still debated. In this study, we reviewed the clinical features of 27 consecutive patients with diffuse gliomas admitted to the Department of Paediatrics of CHR Citadelle, University of Liege, between 1985 and 2005. We review their clinical presentation, diagnosis, treatment and outcome with reference to the published literature. [less ▲]

We present the experience of the Citadelle Hospital (Liege, B) in the diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of medulloblastoma in children. A retrospective study of 10 cases of medulloblastoma was performed. Five years after diagnosis, the event-free survival was 77%. [less ▲]

In this retrospective study, we analyse epidemiology, clinical symptoms and therapeutic results in a group of 23 children with neuroblastoma. Half of them were less than 2 years of age; in 19 of 23, the primitive tumour was abdominal; 35% of them were initially metastatic. The overall survival was 83% at 5 years and the event free survival, 75% at 5 years. Pronostic factors are age, extension of the disease at diagnosis, biologic parameters and genetic study of the neuroblast cells (amplification of N-myc oncogen). Our study shows the deleterious effect of bone lesions. [less ▲]

One hundred and fourteen consecutive totally implantable catheters were inserted in 114 patients between April 1984 and April 1987. Catheters were inserted under neuroleptanalgesia, through the jugular vein in 101 cases or the internal saphenous vein in 13 cases. No problem was encountered during the insertion procedure. Infection occurred in 5.2% of the patients but removal of the device was required in only 2.6%. Occlusion of the catheter occurred in 6.1% of the patients but never during the first 2 months. This complication rate is lower than the one observed with external tunnelled catheters. The comfort of the patient is substantially improved and nursing care is greatly facilitated. [less ▲]
