Anaplastic astrocytoma (WHO grade III): hypercellular astrocytomas that in addition to nuclear atypia, have increased mitotic activity. - Vascular proliferation and necrosis are absent. 6d,e). - Neuropil-rich islands that are surrounded by oligodendroglial-like cells may be encountered in rare infiltrative astrocytomas (grades II and III). These areas are characteristically positive for neural markers synaptophysin and Neu-N. - A note of caution in grading: - “Few mitoses are acceptable in a large sample of otherwise typical grade II astrocytoma, whereas detection of even a single mitotic figure within a tiny needle core biopsy would be grounds for upgrading to high grade astrocytoma” (at least anaplastic astrocytoma).

5. (a) Smear preparation of a diffuse astrocytoma containing moderately cellular fragments of tissue and cells with oval hyperchromatic nuclei and elongated fibrillar cytoplasmic processes. (b) This smear preparation of diffuse astrocytoma demonstrates the gemistocytic morphology, the tumor cells having plump cytoplasmic “bellies”, some with discernible short processes, and eccentric round to oval nuclei. (c and d) Cytologic preparations of high grade astrocytomas are much more hypercellular with cell crowding and overlap and atypical nuclei.

With gliomatosis, better survival is afforded by younger age and lower histologic grade.
