Objective: In contrast to astrocytic tumors including glioblastomas (GBM), oligodendrogliomas (O) have a better prognosis and increased responsiveness to chemotherapy. Interestingly, a small subgroup of glioblastomas contains areas with histological features of oligodendroglial differentiation. In the[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
