The Expanding Family of Glioneuronal Tumors

Allende, Daniela S. MD; Prayson, Richard A. MD

Collapse Box


Three new entities have been recently added to the group of glioneuronal tumors in the most recent update of the World Health Organization classification of tumors of the central nervous system: papillary glioneuronal tumor, rosetted glioneuronal tumor with neuropil-like islands, and rosette-forming glioneuronal tumor of the fourth ventricle. These tumors are relatively infrequent lesions, and because of that, they can be challenging to diagnose for the practicing pathologist. In this article, we summarize the clinical and pathologic findings of these new lesions.
