Gliomatosis cerebri (GC) is an aggressive glioma characterized by an invasive growth pattern and a dismal prognosis. The low incidence and non-specific symptoms at presentation pose unique challenges for early diagnosis and disease-specific research. There is no standard of care for the treatment of patients with a GC phenotype. Understanding the biology of this entity is a critical step in determining effective treatments. Toward this end, the Second International GC Group convened at National Institutes of Health, Bethesda on June 22nd-23rd 2017. This paper summarizes the main conclusions and recommendations for research priorities to fight this fatal condition.
