MICROSCOPIC DESCRIPTION: The sections show a moderately hypercellular tumour which consists of ependymal cells arranged in well formed perivascular pseudorosettes. Myxoid material is present within the pseudorosettes, in many places forming microcysts. Tumour cells are arranged in diffuse sheets between pseudo-rosettes. The features are of myxopapillary ependymoma.
