NCCN Guidelines for Patients



Brain Cancer – Gliomas, Version 1.2016

Part 5 is a guide to the treatment options

for adults with ependymoma in either

the brain or spine. Also, you may have

an option of joining a clinical trial. This

information is taken from the treatment

guidelines written by NCCN experts for

doctors treating gliomas. Your doctors

may suggest other treatments than those

listed in Part 5 based on your health and

personal wishes.

Subependymoma is one of two types of grade I

ependymoma. These tumors do not grow into nearby

tissue. They can be cured by surgery alone and don’t

recur. Thus, Part 5 focuses on other ependymomas

including grade I myxopapillary ependymoma.
