Ependymoma is a type of brain tumor that develops in the ependyma, which is the thin membrane lining the ventricles of the brain and spinal cord. Once the tumor affects the central nervous system, it is difficult for the individual to learn new skills, communicate or make new memories. Sometimes, ependymoma can cause changes to the individual’s emotional state and affects motor skills, such as walking or writing. Depending on each case, it can develop slowly or quickly.
In most cases, adults develop ependymoma in the brain itself, while it is usually the brain stem that is affected in children, causing difficulties in their ability to see, hear and breathe.
According to the American Brain Tumor Association (ABTA), this type of tumor is relatively rare, accounting for 2% of all brain tumors. Nevertheless, it is the sixth most common brain tumor in children. Ependymoma accounts for almost 30% of all brain tumors in children. The tumor growth can be caused by a genetic predisposition, previous head trauma or an infection.
