The prognosis for patients with glioblastoma is very poor.
With current treatment, consisting of resection when
feasible together with radiotherapy and chemotherapy, the
mean length of survival after diagnosis is only 8 to 10
months; fewer than 10% of patients are alive after 2 years.

well differentiated and behave as

ependymomas occur with
increased cell density, high
mitotic rates, areas of necrosis,
and less evident ependymal

more aggressive (WHO grade

Ganglion Cell Tumors

Several types of CNS tumors contain matureappearing neurons (ganglion cells); these may
constitute the entire population of the lesion
(gangliocytomas). More commonly, there is an
admixture with a glial neoplasm, and the lesion is
termed a ganglioglioma. Most of these tumors are
slow growing, but the glial component occasionally
becomes frankly anaplastic, and the disease then
progresses rapidly. Lesions that contain mixtures of
neuronal and glial elements often present as a
seizure disorder; surgical resection of the tumor is
usually effective in controlling the seizures.

Neurositoma low-grade neuronal neoplasm
found within and adjacent to the ventricular
system (most commonly the lateral or third
ventricles), characterized by evenly spaced,
round, uniform nuclei and often islands of
neuropil. Although in pattern and shape the cells
resemble oligodendroglioma, ultrastructural and
immunohistochemical studies reveal the
neuronal lineage of the tumor cells.


In children, medulloblastomas are located in the midline of the
cerebellum , but lateral locations are more often found in
adults. Rapid growth may occlude the flow of CSF, leading to
hydrocephalus. The tumor is often well circumscribed, gray,
and friable and may be seen extending to the surface of the
cerebellar folia and involving the leptomeninges.
On microscopic examination, medulloblastoma is usually
extremely cellular, with sheets of anaplastic cells ( Fig. 28-47C
). Individual tumor cells are small, with little cytoplasm and
hyperchromatic nuclei that are frequently elongated or
crescent shaped. Mitoses are abundant, and markers of
cellular proliferation, such as Ki-67, are detected in a high
percentage of the cells. The tumor has the potential to
express neuronal (neurosecretory granules or Homer Wright

Most meningioma are considered grade I/IV by the WHO classification

scheme, having a relatively low risk of recurrence or aggressive growth.

Atypical meningiomas (WHO grade II/IV) are lesions with a higher

rate of recurrence and more aggressive local growth that may require
therapy in addition to surgery. The diagnostic criteria for this category
of meningioma require either a mitotic index of four or more mitoses
per 10 high power fields or three or more of the atypical features
(increased cellularity, small cells with a high nuclear:cytoplasmic ratio,
prominent nucleoli, patternless growth, or necrosis). Certain histologic
patterns (clear cell and chordoid) are also considered to be grade II/IV
because of their more aggressive behavior.

Anaplastic (malignant) meningioma (WHO grade III/IV) is a highly

aggressive tumor that has the overall appearance of a high-grade
sarcoma, although there is usually some histologic evidence that
indicates a meningothelial cell origin. Mitotic rates are often extremely
high (>20 mitoses per 10 high power fields). Certain histologic
subtypes of meningioma are also considered to be WHO grade III/IV
tumors. Papillary meningioma (with pleomorphic cells arranged
around fibrovascular cores) and rhabdoid meningioma (with sheets of
tumor cells with hyaline eosinophilic cytoplasm containing intermediate
filaments) both have a high propensity to recur.

Metastatic lesions, mostly
carcinomas, account for
approximately a quarter to half of
intracranial tumors in hospital
patients. The five most common
primary sites are lung, breast, skin
(melanoma), kidney, and
gastrointestinal tract, accounting
for about 80% of all metastases.
