Example text

It has a characteristic broad, nodular growth pattern. As with neuroblastic tumors at other sites, the neoplastic cells have a neural immunophenotype and ultrastructure. Homer Wright–type rosettes (with central neurofibrillary processes) or, occasionally, Flexner-Wintersteiner rosettes (with central lumina) may be seen. A high mitotic rate and necrosis tend to indicate aggressive biologic behavior. Pineal Parenchymal Tumors The pineal gland is made up of cells having phenotypic characteristics of retinal photoreceptors, with which they share a common embryonic lineage.

Favorable clinical outcome is also highly correlated with age less than 1 year, confinement of tumor to the adrenal gland, and histologic parameters such as a low mitosis-karyorrhexis index. Better-differentiated tumors consisting of neuroblasts, differentiating neuroblasts, and mature ganglion cells with more abundant schwannian stroma are known as ganglioneuroblastomas, and tumors consisting entirely of schwannian stroma with scattered mature ganglion cells are designated ganglioneuromas. Olfactory Neuroblastoma.

Age and sex distribution, location, clinical presentation, and imaging features are all similar to those of WHO grade II oligodendroglioma. Two histologic variants have been recognized: a “compact” or biphasic variant and a “diffuse” or intermingled variant. Neither the astrocytic nor the oligodendroglial component should have anaplastic histology. The diagnosis of oligoastrocytoma is usually easier and less controversial in the biphasic variant, which shows distinct areas of oligodendroglial and astrocytic differentiation.
