Informations about the disease

Clinical Comment

Gliomas are CNS neoplasms derived from glial cells comprising astrocytomas, glioblastoma multiforme, oligodendrogliomas, ependymomas, subependymomas. Glial cells can show various degrees of differentiation even within the same tumor. Ependymomas are rare glial tumors of the brain and spinal cord. Subependymomas are unusual tumors believed to arise from bipotential subependymal cells, which normally differentiate into either ependymal cells or astrocytes. Gliomas are known to occur in association with several other well-defined hereditary tumor syndromes such as mismatch repair cancer syndrome, melanoma-astrocytoma syndrome, neurofibromatosis-1 + -2, tuberous sclerosis. Familial clustering of gliomas may occur in the absence of these tumor syndromes. Genetic susceptibility to glioma development is also heterogenous.
