Abstract

Little consensus has been established about the treatment strategy for low-grade gliomas (LGGs), because this disease is rare with a long clinical course and so the overall clinical picture of patients with LGGs is difficult to accurately describe. Therefore, meticulous records of each patient and permanent preservation are indispensable to understand the entire clinical course. Here, two cases of reoperated LGGs after long-term progression-free periods are reported. The patients had been initially treated 20 and 35 years ago by radical surgical resection performed by two pioneers of our department, Drs. Jiro Suzuki and Akira Takaku.
