Variations in the natural history and survival of patients with supratentorial low-grade astrocytomas
Long-term efficacy of early versus delayed radiotherapy for low-grade astrocytoma
and oligodendroglioma in adults: the EORTC 22845 randomised trial.
37) Additionally, alterations in MYB and MYBL1, primarily fusion events, have been observed in angiocentric gliomas and low-grade astrocytomas
Pathological and molecular advances in pediatric low-grade astrocytoma
Rosenthal fibers and granular bodies, although conceivable in the context of low-grade astrocytoma
, have not been documented to date.
The most common misdiagnosis was low-grade astrocytoma
(39%), followed by nondiagnostic biopsy (18%), highgrade astrocytoma (15%) and, less frequently, oligodendroglioma, infarction, infection, or lymphoma.
18-21) Nakamura et al (20) additionally revealed a strong tendency toward down-regulation of p14ARF protein immunoreactivity during progression from low-grade astrocytoma
Multiple low-grade astrocytomas
may be seen in the spinal cord in the setting of neurofibromatosis type 1.
are more common in young adults, whereas high-grade astrocytomas primarily affect older adults.
They located changes in the IDH1 gene in more than 70 percent of three common types of gliomas: low-grade astrocytomas
, oligodendrogliomas, and secondary glioblastomas.
