Sample text

Anaplastic oligodendroglioma (WHO grade III). The exact incidence of anaplastic oligodendroglioma has been difficult to determine for various reasons, including the lack of clear-cut histopathological criteria in prior studies. Age of onset, location, and clinical features are generally similar to those of oligodendroglioma. Imaging studies usually show some degree of contrast enhancement. The macroscopic appearance is similar to oligodendroglioma except that areas of necrosis may be present. Microscopically these tumors have the general histological appearance of an oligodendroglioma but in addition demonstrate focal or diffuse features of overt malignancy, including increased cellularity, cytological atypia, frequent mitoses, and usually microvascular proliferation and/or necrosis with or without pseudopalisading (Fig.

The clear cell variant is frequently associated with anaplastic histology (see below) and more aggressive biological behavior, and would be considered a grade III tumor. Tanycytic ependymomas have tumor cells arranged in fascicles with ill-defined perivascular pseudorosettes and rare ependymal tubules; they most often occur in the spinal cord and may appear similar to astrocytomas or schwannomas. Ependymomas are generally considered to be slow-growing “benign” tumors; however, it has been difficult to precisely correlate tumor histology with prognosis, partly due to the prior inability to define reliable indicators of anaplasia (see below).

3. Myxopapillary ependymoma (WHO grade I). This is a distinct subtype of ependymoma that almost exclusively occurs in the conus medullaris/cauda equina region of the spinal cord, where they are thought to arise from ependymal cells in the filum terminale. They have rarely been described in other locations in the brain and spinal cord.
