Second medical opinions
The second opinion board of the KiTZ is an offer that is particularly aimed at patients with recurrent brain tumors, but also other cancers. It consists of pediatric oncologists and scientists from the University Hospital Heidelberg and the German Cancer Research Center. The board members meet regularly to discuss complex or rare cases of childhood cancer. They take into account the latest molecular genetic findings in pediatric neuro-oncology.
Inquiries about patients with low-grade glioma (LGG) are discussed weekly with colleagues from Children's Oncology Charité Berlin in the joint LOGGIC Tumor Board. Please send second opinion requests to low-grade gliomas (LGG) directly to the colleagues in Berlin:
