The management of skull base tumours: A challenge claiming for a multidisciplinary collaboration

Marco Krengli

Summary:

The interest in a special issue on the management of skull base tumours resides in the recent developments of surgery and radiation therapy which are the main treatment modalities employed for these lesions. These recent progresses together with an improved knowledge of biology and natural history of skull base tumours have allowed more tailored treatments for patients affected by tumours of this body district. As a matter of fact, a large variety of benign and malignant lesions may arise in the base of skull. A peculiar aspect of this anatomic site is the close proximity of the tumours to several structures deputed to highly relevant vital functions that limit the aggressiveness of surgery and radiotherapy that have to take into account the preservation of the patients’ quality of life.
