Brain tumor registry is an essential element of brain tumor control strategy, providing epidemiological, management, and outcome data for patients with brain tumor. To establish a well documented and sustainable assessment of brain tumor data in Korea, the Korean Brain Tumor Study Group prepared Korean Brain Tumor Registry, which is a collaborative study involving all of the neurosurgical training hospitals in Korea. The participating hospitals will collect epidemiololgical data for the malignant, benign, uncertain and unspecified tumors of the brain. The 10th Revision of the ICD and the morphlolgy rubrics of the second edition of the ICD-O will be used to meet the international standards of tumor registry. The annual study will provide clinical information that will be disseminated to physicians, allied health personnel, administrators, health care planner, and public and private agencies. The final goal of this study is to establish the population-based national brain tumor registry.
