For complex and rare cases

The second opinion board of the KiTZ is an offer that is particularly aimed at patients with recurrent brain tumors, but also other types of cancer. It consists of pediatric oncologists and scientists from Heidelberg University Hospital and the German Cancer Research Center. They meet regularly to discuss complex or rare cases of childhood cancer. In doing so, they take into account the latest molecular genetic findings in pediatric neuro-oncology.
