Tasty Morsels of EM 030 – Signs of a brain tumour in Kids

15 Sep

I keep a little, ever-expanding note on my phone where I jot down little morsels of goodness that I pick up while listening to or reading one of the many excellent sites/podcasts in the useful resource section. They’re useful in a kind of “board review” way. I tend to skip the really basic stuff and try and focus on what I didn’t know.

I’ll try and transfer them here for your enlightenment.

From the EMPEM podcast and this paper

5 signs of a brain tumour (as opposed to headaches alone, which isn’t a useful discriminator)

  • Pailloedema

  • Ataxia

  • Focal weakness/hemiparesis

  • Abnormal eye movements

  • Change in reflexes
