Background Pilocytic astrocytoma is a rare tumour, usually occurring in paediatric ages, and mainly located in the posterior fossa. The most common site is the posterior fossa in paediatric patients. These symptoms were resolved by conservative treatment. Histopathology reported a low grade glial proliferation, with an extensive fibrillar matrix, small cells without atypia, extensive calcifications and piloid areas consisting of bipolar fusiform cells, and some Rosenthal fibres.

Neuropathological spectrum of pilocytic astrocytoma: It is a well-circumscribed, slow growing tumour. Spectroscopy of untreated pilocytic astrocytomas: Magnetic resonance of the skull. Pilocytic astrocytoma is more frequent in paediatric patients and in the posterior quiztico.

The patient received treatment with platelet apheresis, corticosteroids and immunoglobulin. The long-term prognosis is good, but it is necessary to perform a follow-up, particularly in adult patients because of a higher risk of recurrence. astrocitomw

We are confident that this evolution in publication will serve the needs of the international community, as well as to provide astrocitlma Mexican scientists with quistco visibility throughout the global community. SJR uses a similar algorithm as the Google page rank; it provides a quantitative and qualitative measure of the journal’s impact. Prevalence of central nervous system tumours and Continuing navigation will be considered as acceptance of quiwtico use. It can cause hydrocephalus and intracranial hypertension and, less frequently, seizures, or a focal neurological deficit.


The patient was discharged neurologically intact. Please cite this article as: Practical molecular pathologic diagnosis of pilocytic astrocytomas. There were also spongiotic areas consisting of multipolar cells and associated microcysts. J Clin Neurosci, 21pp.

We present the case of a young adult patient with a right temporal pilocytic astrocytoma, who began with epilepsy.
