Secondary Analysis of Pediatric Brain Tumors in Morocco

ABSTRACT: The aim of this study is to conduct secondary analysis of pediatric central nervous system tumors through characterization of disease incidence rates and histopathological subtypes from cases ascertained from the Casablanca Cancer Registry.  In addition I aim to examine underreported cases, as well as providing a prescription for future work done by the cancer registry to account for discrepancies in cases reported in the registry. Data will be collected through the population based cancer registry, medical chart review and histopathologic characterization of tissue samples.
