Grade is dependent upon the astrocytic component though it is typically low grade and thus carries a relatively favorable prognosis. − Gliomatosis – most frequently astrocytic, though infrequently may contain oligodendroglial elements. Nuclei tend to be elongated and hyperchromatic, and pleomorphic forms are not uncommon. Secondary structures are frequently present. Mitotic activity is variable.

Approximately <10% of low grade astrocytomas undergo malignant transformation in children compared with over 90% in adult patients. ·· Pontine high grade astrocytomas occur at a younger age (mean = 8 years) compared with high grade astrocytomas of other sites. ·· Gliomatosis is rare in adults and children, with neurologic signs/symptoms generally nonlocalizing. 1a, b). 1c). - Unlike their adult counterparts, pediatric glioblastoma additionally represents the most frequent tumor of the brainstem, particularly the pons.
