Diffuse low grade astrocytoma

Discussion:

Low grade infiltrative astrocytomas, also often referred to as diffuse astrocytomas, are designated as WHO II tumors of the brain. Gemistocytic astrocytoma is one histologic subtype with a poorer prognosis than other matched WHO grade tumors, and with no specific imaging features. These tumors are almost always supratentorial and usually located in the frontal lobes.
