Diffuse glioma classification (WHO 2016)

Case contributed by A.Prof Frank Gaillard

This flow chart represents the pathway from histological diagnosis of a diffuse glioma, down through IDH and 1p19q testing to a final diagnosis. 

Note, that for probable glioblastomas there is the added qualifier of age, as IDH mutations are uncommon in the over 55 year-olds and as such sequencing is generally not recommended, provided there are no reasons to suspect a high likelihood of a mutation.
