Example text

Calcifications and cysts are frequent accompaniments. Surgical excision is considered curative. The existence of anaplastic versions has been suggested, but is not universally embraced. Paraganglioma. Within the cranial vault and spinal canal can arise tumors of extra-adrenal chromaffin tissue that are analogous to pheochromocytomas of the adrenal gland. Most often these are circumscribed nodules in the filum terminale, although cranial and spinal nerve root masses extending into skull or vertebral foramina have been noted.

The biologic behavior of these neoplasms is determined more by their anatomic extent at the time of presentation than by histologic features. Neuroblastic Tumors Peripheral Neuroblastic Tumors. Arising in the neural-crest–derived adrenal gland or sympathetic nervous system in children, peripheral neuroblastic tumors are typified by densely packed, small, “blue” cells, sometimes forming rosettes and neuropil stroma. The most primitive tumor of this group, the neuroblastoma, occurs in the first decade of life as a palpable abdominal mass or as a dumbbell-shaped mass filling a spinal foramen.

The tumor may also contain microcystic areas. Mitoses are very rare or absent and other features of anaplasia are not present. This tumor has an extremely favorable outcome after surgical resection, with the exception of the sacrococcygeal variant, which is associated with a greater rate of regrowth and potential for metastatic dissemination. Subependymoma (WHO Grade I). Subependymomas are well-demarcated, slow-growing, benign tumors composed of cells resembling subependymal glia. They are typically attached to the ventricular wall and project into the lumen.
