We have analyzed the therapeutic standard options for high grade gliomas, with particular attention to the different radiation therapy modalities and techniques and their application considering the natural history of the disease. Of the several therapeutic options, surgical resection remains the initial treatment of choice for patients with high grade glioma; of all adjuvant treatments tested, radiotherapy offers the greatest magnitude of survival benefit, so radiotherapy, which must be started within 6 weeks of surgery, is mandatory for practically all patients with high grade gliomas. In this paper we perform an overview considering the integration between the different therapeutic modalities, with particular attention to the radiation therapy role in the management of high grade gliomas.
