Abstract: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of radiotherapy (RT) and stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) for neurofibromas. We studied 4 patients treated with RT (3 patients) or SRS (1 patient) and followed from 1.7 to 14.8 years. The tumor remained locally controlled in all patients. No significant complications related to treatment were observed. RT and SRS are likely to locally control neurofibromas in patients who require treatment and are not good candidates for complete resection.
