Anaplastic ganglioglioma

Disease definition

A rare mixed neuronal-glial tumor characterized by a mostly supratentorial space-occupying lesion often involving the temporal lobe, although it may occur anywhere in the central nervous system. The tumor shows anaplastic features in its glial component and is considered WHO grade III, which may, albeit inconsistently, indicate more aggressive behavior and less favorable prognosis. Clinical symptoms vary according to the location, the most common manifestation being seizures.
