    Causes and Statistics

    The exact causes of gliomas are not known. Hereditary genetic disorders such as neurofibromatoses (type 1 and type 2) and tuberous sclerosis complex are known to predispose to their development. Different oncogenes can cooperate in the development of gliomas. In Norway, glioma’s incidence rate was about 13.5% in males and 14.9% in females.
