Intracerebral granular cell neoplasms are uncommon. We report five hemispheric astrocytomas, all of which showed the distinctive features of granular cell change, being composed exclusively or predominantly of rounded cells with coarse granular eosinophilic cytoplasm and eccentrically placed nuclei. Four showed clear foci of transition from an anaplastic astrocytoma and contained lipidized as well as granular cells. In all tumors, the cytoplasmic granules were positive for periodic acid Schiff… CONTINUE READING
