Recent advances in the pathology of brain tumors



Recent advances in the pathology of brain tumors



Confinia Neurol [basel] 5(5/6): 318-336, 1942-



The frequency in a series of 467 histologically verified brain tumors as reported by Baker (1940) was: Tumors of nerves 1.5%, tumors of meninges 18.4%, gliomas 58.5%, vascular tumors 5.2%, tumors of mixed tissue 0.8%, hypophyseal tumors 7.1%, granulomas 6.3%, miscellaneous tumors 2.3%. The specific types found in gliomas were: astrocytoma 45.4%, satroblastoma 5.0%, spongioblastoma polare 2.9%, glioblastoma multiforme 25.4%, medulloblas-toma 7.5%, oligodendroglioma 2.1%, pinealoma 2.1%, epen-dymoma 7.1%, neuroepithelioma 1.4%, papilloma of choroid plexus 0.4%, no ganglioneuromas, undetermined types 0.7%. Among 315 brain tumors examined by Horrax (1939) there were 60 meningiomas (19%) which is higher than in most series. Their distribution was: over cerebral convexities 24, suprasellar 2, olfactory groove 5, orbitotemporal 9, bilateral, extending across sagittal sinus 4, arising from falx 5, replacing pineal body 1, intraventricular 1, from sheath of Gasserian ganglion 1, cerebellar 4, multiple 4. The topographic features of gliomas and the induction of exptl. tumors are reviewed.
