Abstract: Detailed brain imaging studies discover gliomas incidentally before clinical symptoms or signs show. These tumors represent an early stage in the natural history of gliomas. Left untreated, they are likely to progress to a symptomatic stage and transform to malignant gliomas. A greater extent of resection delays the onset of malignant transformation and prolongs patient survival. Because incidental gliomas are typically smaller and less likely to be in eloquent brain locations, there is a strong case for early surgical intervention to maximize resection and improve outcomes. This article discusses developments in the surgical management of low-grade gliomas.
