Statistical Report: Primary brain and other central nervous system tumors diagnosed in the United States in 2010-2014.
Los tumores pituitarios constituyen el tercer tumor del sistema nervioso mas comun en el adulto (10-15 %), con una incidencia de 3,47 por cada 100.000 personas segun CBTRUS
. La mayoria son adenomas (9 %), comunmente vistos en mujeres afrodescendientes e hispanas.
The ranking of these Canadian survival rates by histology is similar to that reported in CBTRUS
for US data between 2005 and 2009.
The CBTRUS organizes the location of the lesions by site categories (1).
This study's percentage is similar to the results of the site distribution in the USA published in CBTRUS (2005) (1).
In the USA, the incidence of the meningiomas documentedby the CBTRUS was 30.1 % and was the CNS tumor with the highest incidence (Table 9).
In United States, data collection is centralized by specialized register called Cerebral Brain Tumor Registry of the United States (CBTRUS
The Central Brain Tumor Registry of the United States (CBTRUS, 2005) compiles statistics on primary malignant and nonmalignant brain tumor cases.
The 5-year survival rate after the diagnosis of all primary malignant brain or central nervous system tumors is about 30% (CBTRUS, 2005).
