Designation of a tumor as gemistocytic astrocytoma, versus an ordinary diffuse or ﬁbrillary astrocytoma with occasional gemistocytes, is somewhat arbitrary. One study suggested a minimum 20% gemistocytic component as being clinically signiﬁcant. Grading parameters that are used in evaluating diffuse ﬁbrillary astrocytomas are also employed in evaluating gemistocytic astrocytomas. In the current case, the presence of readily identiﬁable mitotic activity warrants the designation of a WHO grade III neoplasm.
The presence of vascular proliferative changes and necrosis warrant a diagnosis of a grade IV astrocytoma. DISCUSSION Glioblastoma multiforme can assume an epithelioid appearance. In some instances, this takes the form of cells with lipidized cytoplasm. 5 Strong diffuse positive immunostaining with antibody to GFAP is observed in this epithelioid glioblastoma. 4 Vascular proliferative changes are present. or adrenocortical carcinoma) or pleomorphic xanthoastrocytoma is of consideration. In contrast to the pleomorphic xanthoastrocytoma, the epithelioid glioblastoma demonstrates features typical of glioblastoma, including vascular proliferative changes, necrosis, and prominent mitotic activity.
