According to the histological type of tumors, the patients were classified into three groups: Group A included 22 patients with meningioma, Group B composed of 16 patients diagnosed with glioblastoma, and Group C including 14 patients diagnosed with diffuse astrocytoma. Neurological examination, neuroimaging assessment [computed tomography CT or magnetic resonance imaging MRI for skulls] to diagnose primitive brain tumors, then the confirmation of clinical and histopathological diagnoses were performed for these patients.
The results familial cancer example statistically analyzed using the Student's t-test; p-values less than 0.
The group of patients with diffuse astrocytoma presented a higher educational level compared to patients with glioblastoma or meningioma.
MoCA score obtained in glioblastoma group was The cognitive assessment using CAMCOG scale led to the following results: group of patients diagnosed with glioblastoma showed an average score of
