The urinary 6-hydroxymethylpterin( Pt-6-CH2 OH) excretion was determined in 87 patients with brain tumours and in 50 control patients. The Pt-6-CH20H levels were significantly elevated in all patients with tumours. No difference was observed when malignant tumours were compared with benign neoplasms. Following therapy, the Pt-6-CH20H levels were partially reduced when compared with control patients and their pre-operative values.
