Pancytokeratin expression is a common finding in all of these, but GFAP positivity helps to rule out metastatic carcinoma. 1 would support a diagnosis of choroid plexus carcinoma, whereas BRAF V600E mutation detection would strongly favor epithelioid glioblastoma. 9 Prognosis • Although the majority of grade II astrocytomas arising in adults will undergo malignant transformation, fewer than 10 % of pediatric low-grade astrocytomas are destined to that fate. The remainder can expect prolonged progressionfree survival (mean approximately 10 years).

Mitotic figures may be seen, and a “dirty” background indicative of necrosis (as in D) is often seen in smears of glioblastoma pattern is also common in oligodendroglial tumors (Fig. 8). – Multiple diffuse astrocytoma morphologic patterns have been described: • Fibrillary: By far the most frequent morphology. Despite its name, it is typified by cells bearing only minimal discernible cytoplasm (naked nuclei). This morphology may be present in both low-grade (grade II) and high-grade (III and IV) lesions (Figs.

Neuropil-rich islands that are surrounded by oligodendroglial-like cells may be encountered in rare infiltrative astrocytomas (grades II and III). These areas are characteristically positive for neural markers synaptophysin and Neu-N. ° Glioblastoma (WHO grade IV): In addition to findings as listed for anaplastic astrocytoma, glioblastomas display necrosis (typically pseudopalisading necrosis), microvascular proliferation, or frequently both. – Individual tumor cells may range from small to bipolar to huge cells with markedly pleomorphic nuclei or multinucleation (see below).
