By A.B.M.F. Karim, Edward R. Jr. Laws

Many fresh advancements in neuro-oncology proper to medical perform have contributed to better sufferer care. the main im­ portant effect of those advancements on remedy could have been a metamorphosis within the attitudes of the neuro-oncologists concerned with making judgements relating to sufferers with gliomas. From an period of uncertainty which ended in healing nihilism, now we have entered certainly one of lively interventions in accordance with goal parameters for the deal with­ ment of gliomas, that may be both slow-growing or speedy kil­ lers. The histopathological features of gliomatous lesions are exciting, and it's only lately clearer photo has started to emerge. a bunch of devoted neuropathologists has been at­ tempting to arrive a consensus on pathological type and grading, delivering a tremendous landmark within the box of neuro­ oncology. This booklet doesn't suggest to supply exhaustive information at the histopathology of gliomas, yet relatively highlights the most difficulties in an authoritative bankruptcy. This bankruptcy makes an attempt to lead the reader to a greater realizing of all facets of the neuropathology of glioma. Neuroradiology has lately visible numerous breakthroughs. Im­ a long time unbelievable a decade in the past at the moment are supplying us with an al­ such a lot third-dimensional influence. however the concomitant illusions and artifacts should also be stored in brain, and pragmatic principles are conscientiously recommend during this ebook in regards to the constructing physique of data in regards to the more recent imaging techniques.

Following surgery, control CT and/or MRI should be carried out just before the initiation of radiation therapy. It is best to perform these pretherapy scans 3-4 weeks after surgical intervention, when reactive edema and residual bleeding have ceased. Moreover, peripheral contrast enhancement in the operative field is no longer likely to occur. In some cases this cavity may look like a "punched-out" hole. This hole may become smaller or larger, or it may even disappear at a later stage, depending on the parenchymal reactions after irradiation.

Grade 2 oligodendroglioma. Stam The Problems of Pathological Diagnosis 25 dendrogliomas can transform into glioblastomas. The WHO classification (1979) also distinguishes anaplastic oligodendrogliomas and oligodendrogliomas with areas of anaplasia. from glioblastomas. This type of oligodendrogliogenic glioblastoma corresponds histologically to grade 4 tumours for the simple reason that glioblastomas do so. Between the typical oligodendrogliomas and these oligodendrogliogenic glioblastomas a transitional type can be distinguished.

Earnest et al. (1950) could not find a satisfactory system of grading that correlated with clinicopathological features. urs and cO,ncluded that postoperative survival does correlate with histology. Other authors have emphasized the role of radiation therapy. Sheline et al. (1964) concluded from their study that patients who received postoperative irradiation survived for a significantly longer period than those who did not. These authors used no histological sUbtyping. Radiation therapy seemed to be an important factor with respect to the prognosis.
