Neurosurgical Management Of Highgrade Gliomas

Fig. 10.1. Summary of distinct patterns of molecular genetic changes seen in HGGs that are associated with GBMs arising from lower grade lesions (secondary GBM) vs those arising de novo (primary GBM). Several of the molecular abnormalities noted in this figure have been used as targets for therapy that are delivered intraoperatively by the neurosurgeon (see text). (Courtesy of Kleihues et al.

formation of AO and AOA are not as well characterized as those that lead to the formation of AA and GBM. The recent description of allelic losses on chromosomes 19q and 1p in most low-grade oligodendrogliomas points to potential early events in their genesis, but candidate tumor suppressors for these loci have not been identified. In a subset of cases, the subsequent molecular changes associated with malignant progression to AO include allelic loss of 9p or homozygous deletion of the cell cycle inhibitor CDKN2A (p16INK4A) gene [4].

The term vaginitis is one that is applied to any inflammation or infection of the vagina, and there are many different conditions that are categorized together under this ‘broad’ heading, including bacterial vaginosis, trichomoniasis and non-infectious vaginitis.
