Intra axial tumors

Intra-Axial Tumors:

  • Gliomas: One of the most common types of primary brain tumors arising from the brain tissue itself, gliomas arise from the supporting cells of the brain, the glial cells.

    Astrocytoma: The most common form of glioma, arising from astrocytes.

    Ependymoma: From the cells lining the ventricles in the brain.

    GlioblastomaMultiforme (AKA grade IV glioma, malignant glioma): The most aggressive form of glioma.

    Oligodendroglioma
