PMID:  12447667     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
CONCLUSION: given the fact that the vast majority of patients (88% in the present study) develop further signs/symptoms, a high level of awareness, a detailed medical history and repeated correctly interpreted neurological examinations should lead to an earlier diagnosis and to a higher probability of total tumour resection.
