Well-differentiated pediatric glial neoplasms with features of oligodendroglioma, angiocentric glioma and dysembryoplastic neuroepithelial tumors: a morphological diagnostic challenge.
 

Author(s): Hande Keser, Michael Barnes, Gregory Moes, Han Sung Lee, Tarık Tıhan

Journal: Turk Patoloji Derg. 2014 ;30(1):23-9.

 

Oligodendrogliomas are rare in the pediatric population, and most oligodendroglioma-like tumors in this age group may belong to other entities. In addition, accurate diagnosis and grading of such lesions using criteria developed for adult oligodendrogliomas prove difficult, and often controversial.
