OBJECT Because of their histological similarities, it is occasionally difficult to differentiate neurocytoma and dysembryoplastic neuroepithelial tumor (DNT) from oligodendroglial tumors. This study was conducted to investigate genetic differences among these tumor types in terms of loss of heterozygosity on chromosomes 1p and 19q, and p53 gene mutation. METHODS A total of 24 tumors were analyzed, consisting of eight central neurocytomas, three DNTs, seven oligodendrogliomas, four… CONTINUE READING
