Özet

Background: Temozolomide is the major drug in the treatment of malignant gliomas. Radiation induced necrosis can behave radiologically and clinically like a recurrent tumor. The major problem is the differentiation between recurrence and radiation injury especially in early phases of treatment. The aim of this study was to evaluate the patients receiving temozolomide showing early clinical or radiological progression and impact of early necrosis on follow-up.
