Gliofibroma: immunohistochemical analysis

  title={Gliofibroma: immunohistochemical analysis},
  author={Ralf Schober and Ciçek Bayindir and Ali Tuncay Canbolat and Henry Urich and Wolfgang Wechsler},
  journal={Acta Neuropathologica},
A case of gliofibroma occurring in an adult patient as a large circumscribed supratentorial tumor is reported. The bimorphic pattern was substantiated and further analyzed by immunohistochemistry. Some evidence in favor of collagen production by mesenchymal and/or inflammatory cells leading to a progressive fibrous replacement of the glial cells in this particular tumor type is presented.
