Ffion said it was her "worst nightmare" when, aged nine, she was told Nia had been diagnosed with an inoperable neurocytoma brain tumour.
The differential diagnosis of a subependymoma is an ependymoma, choroid plexus papilloma, central neurocytoma, subependymal giantcell astrocytoma, hemangioblastoma, cavernous malformation, and metastasis.
The individual tumor cells are morphologically similar to the prototypical neurocytic tumor of the central nervous system, the central neurocytoma.
In fact, at 66, Kersten is now the world's oldest reported case of neurocytoma.
Abstract: Central neurocytoma (CN) is a rare intraventricular brain tumor that affects young adults.
The diagnosis was a central neurocytoma, WHO grade II.
The differential considerations for both studies included ependymoma, subependymoma, neurocytoma, giant cell astrocytoma, and metastasis.
Central neurocytoma is typically but not exclusively a periventricular lesion that is composed of small regular neuronal cells that can mimic oligodendrocytes histomorphologically (Figure 5, C through F).
The characteristic papillary architecture and bipartite (astrocytic and neuronal/neurocytic) cell populations distinguish this lesion from other tumors with which it shares histologic features such as dysembryoplastic neuroepithelial tumor, extraventricular neurocytoma, pilocytic astrocytoma, oligodendroglioma, and astroblastoma.
Additional diagnostic considerations include dysembryoplastic neuroepithelial tumor (DNET), neurocytoma, and clear cell ependymoma.
Central neurocytoma is a relatively benign neoplasm (World Health Organization grade I), originally described by Hassoun and colleagues (1) in 1982, that accounts for less than 1% of all brain tumors.
No areas with histologic features of neurocytoma, oligodendroglioma, or other mature neuroectodermal component were identified.
