B) Neurofilament staining is helpful in documenting the infiltrative quality of these tumors as it decorates native neuritic processes that have been overrun by invasive tumor. 3 mutations. – TP53 mutations also frequently accompany H3F3A or ATRX mutations in pediatric glioblastoma. BRAF V600E mutation may be found in a small per° centage of pediatric glioblastomas (about 10 %), but it is particularly common in the epithelioid subtype (see below). – The most frequent alterations in pediatric secondary glioblastoma are BRAF V600E (about 40 %) and CDKN2A deletion (about 60 %).

11C). • Metaplastic components: Benign stromal elements (muscle, cartilage, bone, lipidized cells) have been described, but they occur far more rarely than the sarcomatous elements of gliosarcoma. Gliosarcoma (WHO grade IV): This biphasic, high-grade glioma has both malignant astrocytic (glioblastoma) and sarcomatous components. The sarcomatous portion is frequently fibrosarcoma, but may include malignant fibrous histiocytoma, chondrosarcoma, osteosarcoma, leiomyosarcoma, rhabdomyosarcoma, or even liposarcoma.

The most frequent alterations in pediatric secondary glioblastoma are BRAF V600E (about 40 %) and CDKN2A deletion (about 60 %). In most cases, these alterations can be traced back to their underlying low-grade astrocytomas. Interestingly, BRAF mutations appear to be associated with a longer latency to transformation and prolonged overall survival. – Approximately 50 % of pediatric epithelioid glioblastomas have demonstrable BRAF V600E mutations. 3 K27M mutation and chromosome loss of 22q have also been detected.
