The karyotypes of 47 pediatric brain tumors (14 cerebellar pilocytic astrocytomas, six cerebral pilocytic astrocytomas, seven anaplastic astrocytomas and glioblastomas, nine medulloblastomas [PNETs], one cerebral neuroblastoma, four ependymomas, and seven miscellaneous other neoplasms) are presented. Most of the pilocytic astrocytomas and ependymomas had normal karyotypes. In contrast, the majority of the anaplastic astrocytomas-glioblastomas were abnormal. The abnormalities included losses and… CONTINUE READING
