Before the introduction of the "integrated" molecular and histology diagnostic guidelines, diffuse gliomas were classified into one of the following categories based on histology (2): astrocytoma, oligodendroglioma, or mixed glioma. Along with the histologic type, the tumors were (and still are) graded to WHO II, III, and IV, which were regarded as forming the cornerstone of predicting tumor aggressiveness and patient survival.
Mixed glioma with molecular features of composite oligodendroglioma and astrocytoma: a true "oligoastrocytoma"?
Of the 341 cases, 56.6% were glioblastomas (ICD-O codes 9440-9441), 21.7% were astrocytomas (ICD-O 9400-9424), 12.9% were oligodendrogliomas (ICD-O 9450-9451), 5.9% were mixed gliomas or malignant gliomas not otherwise specified (ICD-O 9380-9381), and the rest (2.9%) had other histologic outcomes.
