Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Anaplastic astrocytomas are intermediate in differentiation between astrocytoma and glioblastoma multiforme. Survival with anaplastic astrocytoma is favorably affected by extensive anaplasia, maximal resection and presentation in early life. We report a 2-month-old infant who had a tumor of astrocytic lineage with anaplastic features of necrosis, nuclear atypia and mitotic activity. Following subtotal resection the child is alive but has a radiologically visible tumor.
