 en Environmental causes of childhood brain tumours
Idowu, Olufemi E. & Idowu, Mopelola A.


Brain tumours hitherto said to be rare in Africans are now known to be common. They cause considerable concern due to their relatively high morbidity, mortality and enormous cost of care, especially in the developing world.
