Paper Abstract

The photodynamic therapy of cerebral gliomas is one kind of adjunctive therapy after operative tumor removal. But it is not widely accepted until now. We report two cases of failure treatment in our totally consecutive ten patients treated with this method and analyse the cause of the poor outcome. Unlike the uninary system and digest system, the difficult of necrotic tumor or brain tissue exclusion in the brain is marked and resulted in poor result. Our view is that the problem of massive necrotic tumor tissue exclusion which is the wish of therapist and the key of achieving good result might limit the further application of photodynamic therapy on cerebral gliomas.
