    Diencephalic gliomas may be grouped into 2 clinical categories. Optic pathway/hypothalamus gliomas (OPG) arise primarily from a slower-growing juvenile pilocytic astrocytoma, and thalamic gliomas arise primarily from a fibrillary astrocytoma which can become clinically and histologically more...

    Abstract Background  Optic gliomas may unpredictably stabilize or progress. Prognosis was known to be better in patients with neurofibromatosis 1 (NF1) than those with non-NF1. The confusion over management is caused, at least in part, by the uncertain disease course of the tumor. Case...
