Nevertheless, they can be devastating tumors with poor prognosis. Recent advances and improved understanding of the genetic and molecular characterization of pediatric brain tumors, including those of malignant gliomas, have led to the reclassification of many pediatric brain tumors and new entities have been defined. In this paper, we will present some of the more recent characterization and pertinent changes in pediatric high-grade gliomas, along with the conventional and advanced imaging features associated with these entities. Implications of the recent changes in pediatric malignant glioma classifications will also be discussed. Copyright © 2020 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc. All rights reserved.
