Abstract

Gangliocytomas and Gangliogliomas are well-differentiated, slowly growing neuroepithelial tumors, composed of neoplastic, mature ganglion cells alone or in combination with neoplastic glial cells, respectively. Surgical resection is the standard of care, radiation used for malignant features or unresectable tumors. The epidemiology, clinical, pathologic and genetic features of these rare primary brain tumors are described.
