Necrosis is limited to higher-grade tumors. • At autopsy, these lesions appear as well-defined soft, grey masses involving the cortex and underlying white matter.

Richard and Christine E. 1 Overview • Oligodendroglial tumors represent diffusely infiltrative gliomas composed of cells morphologically resembling oligodendroglia. This group includes oligodendroglioma (WHO grade II) and anaplastic oligodendroglioma (WHO grade III), as well as tumors bearing a mixture of cells with astrocytic and oligodendroglial morphologies: mixed oligoastrocytoma (WHO grade II) and anaplastic mixed oligoastrocytoma (WHO grade III).
