Example text

It is frequently bilateral and may extend into posterior fossa structures and even the spinal cord. Its histogenesis remains controversial; the most popular theories are diffuse infiltration from one or several “primary” sites in the brain and a “field” transformation. From a molecular-biologic point of view, however, it seems likely that gliomatosis represents the most infiltrative example of a clonal diffuse astrocytic tumor. Until recently, the diagnosis of gliomatosis cerebri was made only at postmortem examination, but it is now often suggested clinically on the basis of magnetic resonance imaging findings and a biopsy showing an infiltrating glioma.

Recent evidence suggests, however, that at least some CNS tumors, such as primary glioblastoma, might in fact be derived from multipotential neuroepithelial stem cells that persist throughout adult life. It is also clear that, as with other human cancers, CNS tumors arise when alterations occur in growth-regulatory genes such as oncogenes and tumor-suppressor genes. It is thus paramount that any classification scheme be flexible enough to allow for the inclusion of new diagnostic categories as well as for the modification and even the removal of existing categories on the basis of information derived from newer methodologies.

Anne/Mayo criteria for only the three higher grades of diffuse astrocytoma (Table 2-1). The WHO grade I category is reserved for circumscribed astrocytomas, including pilocytic astrocytoma and subependymal giant cell astrocytoma (SEGA). Diffuse Astrocytoma (WHO Grade II). Diffuse astrocytomas constitute about 10% to 15% of all astrocytic neoplasms. They can affect all age groups but are mainly tumors of adults, with 25% occurring in persons between the ages of 30 and 40. They most commonly occur in the cerebral hemispheres (especially the frontal and temporal lobes), followed by the brainstem and spinal cord, and are rarely seen in the cerebellum.
