Brain Stem Ependymoma: Disease Bioinformatics

A brain stem ependymoma is a tumor that arises from an abnormal growth in cells originating from the ependymal tissue located in the brain stem. Syringomyelia and neurofibromatosis type II are both disorders that are related to ependymomas, and the loss of chromosome 22 is the most common mutation associated with this disorder. The average age of onset of this tumor is either 5 in pediatric cases, or 35 in adult cases. About 85% of ependymomas are benign tumors, and surgery is usually a very successful form of treatment, followed by radiation therapies in more severe cases. Symptoms of a brain stem ependymoma include headaches, nausea, difficulty sleeping, and vision impairment.
