Objective: The correct histological differentiation of oligodendrogliomas from diffuse astrocytomas is difficult and highly subjective in cases without typical morphological features. For grade IV gliomas it was recently shown that gene-expression based classification is better correlated to survival[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
