Brain Tumors by Katharine.Jensen May 22, 2020

This PedsCases Note provides a one-page infographic on pediatric brain tumours. It outlines common classification and distribution of brain tumours, along with signs and symptoms, investigations, and management strategies for patients presenting with a brain tumour. It was created by Katharine Jensen, a medical student at the University of Alberta, with help from Dr. Bev Wilson, a professor and pediatric oncologist at the University of Alberta.
