Pleomorphic Xanthoastrocytoma: A Developmental Glioneuronal Tumor with Prominent Glioproliferative Changes

Abstract

Pleomorphic xanthoastrocytoma (PXA) is a rare primary brain tumor, which usually involves the superficial cortex in children and young adults. Although PXA is considered an astrocytic tumor, recent studies suggest the presence of neuronal differentiation and an origin from multipotential precursor cells.
