Background: Treatment of high-grade glioma consists of fractionated radiation therapy (RT) ± chemotherapy. The incidence/significance of neurological toxicity (NT) in this disease is not known. We evaluated the relationship between acute and chronic NT, and ultimate outcome, as well as risk factors for NT from the RTOG database.
