Central neurocytoma responsive to topotecan, ifosfamide, carboplatin.


PMID 18338396

Abstract

A 5-year-old male presented with spinal cord drop metastasis from a recurrent neurocytoma. Topotecan (0.5 mg/m(2)) and carboplatin (250 mg/m(2)) were administered on days 1-3 and ifosfamide (1,800 mg/m(2)) on days 1-5, every 21 days, for three cycles and resulted in complete response without severe complications. A literature review yielded 20 patients with central neurocytoma but no complete responses. The complete response of central neurocytoma to chemotherapy only reported here should be helpful to those caring for patients with this rare tumor.
