Note: the diagnosis of anaplastic astrocytoma is no longer recognized as a distinct diagnosis as of the 5th Edition of the WHO classification of CNS tumors (2021). Depending on molecular characteristics, this tumor would most likely be classified as either a grade 3 astrocytoma, a grade 4 astrocytoma or a glioblastoma.
