The Central Brain Tumor Registry of the United States (CBTRUS) announces the publication of its latest statistical report, 2009-2010 CBTRUS Statistical Report: Primary Brain and Central Nervous System Tumors Diagnosed in the United States in 2004-2006 (available online at Data collected by the National Program of Cancer Registries (CDC) and SEER (NCI) from 47 population-based cancer registries were analyzed resulting in an incidence rate of 18.71 cases per 100,000 person-years for all primary brain & central nervous system (CNS) tumors. CBTRUS estimates that 62,930 new cases of primary non-malignant and malignant brain and CNS tumors are expected to be diagnosed in the United States in 2010. Meningioma had the highest incidence and accounted for 33.8% of all primary brain tumors in 2004-2006. Gliomas, including glioblastoma, accounted for 32% of these tumors and 80% of all malignant brain tumors.


This Statistical Report continues the past efforts CBTRUS has made to provide accurate, population–based incidence rates for all primary brain and CNS tumors by histology, age, gender, race and Hispanic origin. As in previous reports, these data have been listed in histologic groupings with improved clinical relevance
