Gliosarcoma represents an accepted variant of Glioblastoma, IDH-wildtype within the 2016 CNS WHO Classiﬁcation. Gliofibroma: A very rare tumor, more common in children than in adults. This biphasic tumor is similar to gliosarcoma, but the ﬁbroblastic component is nonsarcomatous. Grade is dependent upon the astrocytic component; it is typically low-grade and thus carries a relatively favorable prognosis. Gliomatosis: Predominantly astrocytic, but gliomatosis infrequently may contain oligodendroglial elements.
IDH1/2 mutations or CDKN2A/CDKN2B deletions are not seen. 8 Differential Diagnosis • Diffuse astrocytoma versus reactive astrocytosis ° Even in astrocytomas of low cellularity, the distribution of cells is irregular, nuclear hyperchromasia is evident, and the typical starlike, elongated processes of reactive astrocytes are absent. ° Neoplastic gemistocytes, similarly, will have stubby processes, not the elongated processes of reactive astrocytes. • Infiltrative astrocytomas versus other gliomas ° Diffuse astrocytomas can be differentiated from oligodendroglial tumors by paying close attention to nuclear morphology; astrocytic tumors have oval to irregularly shaped nuclei, whereas oligodendroglial tumors have round nuclei with perinuclear halo.
Lastly, MR hyperperfusion appears to correlate with shorter survival for DIPG patients. • Inﬁltrative astrocytomas of the spinal cord carry a variable prognosis depending on tumor grade. In all cases, complete surgical resection is difﬁcult, as a distinct interface between normal tissue and tumor is typically absent. Radiation therapy often affords prolonged survival for grade II lesions (5-year overall survival up to 70 %), whereas patients with high-grade spinal astrocytomas succumb to their disease within months despite radiation or chemotherapy.
