The most prominent form of primary intracerebral tumor is gliomas. Their incidence ranges between 45% and 62% of the population, with a slight prevalence in males (M/F: 1.3). Gliomas are tumors that develop from glial or precursor cells that are neuroectodermal in origin. Gliomas account for 75% of malignant primary brain tumors in adults, with glioblastomas accounting for more than half of glioma. While CNS tumors are rare, they are a significant cause of cancer morbidity and mortality, especially in children and young adults, where they account for roughly 30% and 20% of cancer deaths, respectively.
