Clear cell ependymoma

A.Prof Frank Gaillard et al.

Clear cell ependymomas are a histological variant of ependymoma characterised by prominent perinuclear cytoplasmic clearing, reminiscent of oligodendrogliomas 1

They are typically encountered in younger patients and usually in the supratentorial compartment 1

They have a tendency to be quite vascular and may have a worse prognosis 1. RELA fusion-positive ependymomas are not infrequently of clear cell morphology 1.
