dc.description.abstractThe management of intracranial germ cell tumours (ICGCT) is complex. It was agreed at the 2013 Third International ICGCT Symposium (Cambridge, UK) to undertake a multi-disciplinary Delphi process to identify consensus in their management. Seventy-seven delegates from the Symposium were selected as suitable experts and were invited to participate in the Delphi survey; 64 (83%) responded. Those invited represented multiple disciplines from the Far East, Australasia, Europe and America. Thirty-eight consensus statements, encompassing aspects of work-up, staging, treatment and follow-up, were prepared. To achieve consensus, statements required ≥70% agreement from ≥60% of respondents. Overall, 34/38 statements (89%) met consensus criteria. This international Delphi approach has defined key areas of consensus which will guide and streamline future management of ICGCT. In addition, it has identified areas of different understanding and practice internationally which should be the focus of future collaborative studies. Such efforts will likely translate into improved patient outcomes.
