Sammanfattning

There is a lack of clinical protocols for re-irradiation in paediatric central nervous system (CNS) tumours. To fill this void, the Swedish Workgroup of Paediatric Radiotherapy (SBRTG) compiled national guidelines on re-irradiation in paediatric CNS tumours (diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma, ependymoma, germinoma and medulloblastoma). These have been in clinical practice since 2019 in all paediatric radiotherapy centres in Sweden. Since the implementation, the guidelines have been complemented with a yearly review on clinical outcome and toxicities in all paediatric patients treated according to the guidelines. This article presents the Swedish national guidelines on re-irradiation in paediatric CNS tumours.
