This finding is rare in neuroectodermal tumors, and only a few cases of medulloblastomas,[9,10,19] 3 cases of ependymomas,[20] 2 cases of central neurocytoma,[20,21] 1 case of intraspinal low-grade astrocytoma,[22] and I case of cerebral PNET have been reported to contain adipose tissue?
Focal areas of the papillary glioneuronal tumor strongly resemble a neurocytoma. In 1997, Kim and Suh reported a case of a pseudopapillary neurocytoma arising in the temporal lobe of a 25-year-old man that presumably demonstrated areas of glial differentiation.[10] The histologic and immunohistochemical profile of the tumor was identical to that reported by Komori et al, and their case likely represents the first reported example of this papillary glioneuronal tumor.[10] Although immunohistochemical and ultrastructural evidence of glial differentiation in neurocytomas is well recognized, the architectural pattern of this tumor and its extraventricular location suggest a distinctive lesion.[11-13]
I really yearned to create something of my own, of my own brand." Her son Travis survived a rare brain tumor called Extraventricular Neurocytoma.
These symptoms persisted and progressed and in April, right after her five-year all clear from breast cancer, Megan was diagnosed with rare brain tumor called a central neurocytoma.
These case studies featured rare tumors including central neurocytoma, cervical chordoma, germinoma, spinal epidural lipomatosis, glomus jugulare, neurofibromatosis type 2, and craniopharyngioma.
In patients aged above 40 years, Astrocytomas accounted for 12 cases, Meningiomas for 11 cases, Pituitary macroadenomas accounted for 2 cases, Central neurocytoma and secondaries accounted for 1 case each.
The remaining 6% included primitive neuroectodermal tumor, neurocytoma, and ganglioglioma.
Initial differential considerations included supratentorial pilocytic astrocytoma or other low-grade astrocytomas, atypical ependymoma, or less likely central neurocytoma given possible extension into the lateral ventricle.

The error was in misinterpreting microcystic meningioma (WHO grade I) as a malignant neoplasm or high-grade tumor, and misdiagnosing central neurocytoma (WHO grade II) as a low-grade glioma.
