How is it diagnosed?
In addition to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT) plays an important diagnostic role in detecting the presence of microcalcifications. Depending on the histological features, this tumor is divided into degree II and degree III oligodendrogliomas.
How is it treated?
Treatment is based on maximum possible surgical resection, PVC chemotherapy (procarbazine, CCNU and vincristine) and radiation therapy in the case of degree III oligodendrogliomas.
The prognosis is highly variable, depending on the degree of histology and the response to treatment.
