The patient went on to have biopsy of the tumour
Microscopic Description: Sections show small pieces of brain tissue infiltrated by a moderately cellular glial tumour displaying oligodendroglial characteristics. Histologic features associated with high-grade, such as tumour necrosis, vascular neogenesis, or elevated mitotic activity, are not seen, although these fragments are very small.
Final Diagnosis: Oligodendroglioma.
Note: This case predates the recent (2016) revision WHO classification of CNS tumours, and thus molecular markers (IDH mutation and 1p19q co-deletion) are not available. As such, this tumour would now be classified as an oligodendroglioma NOS.
