Ependymomas are well-characterized central nervous system (CNS) tumors that occur most often in children and young adults. Several other CNS tumor entities, including astroblastoma, chordoid glioma, papillary tumor of the pineal region, angiocentric glioma, and pilomyxoid astrocytoma, variably display histopathologic features of ependymal differentiation. The ependymal differentiation in some of these tumors is generally accepted, whereas in others, it is controversial. This article briefly… CONTINUE READING
