  • [Title] Unique molecular characteristics of pediatric myxopapillary ependymoma.
  • Myxopapillary ependymoma (MEPN) generally can be cured by gross total surgical resection and usually manifest a favorable prognosis.
  • Unique molecular features of MEPN were investigated by using microarray technology to compare the gene expression of five pediatric MEPN to 24 pediatric intracranial ependymoma (EPN).
  • The upregulation of three genes of interest, homeobox B13 (HOXB13), neurofilament, light polypeptide (NEFL) and PDGFR alpha, was further studied by immunohistochemistry in a larger cohort that included adult MEPN and EPN specimens.
  • Protein expression in MEPN was compared to subependymoma, spinal EPN, intracranial EPN and normal fetal and adult ependyma.

  • [Title] Identification of relevant prognostic histopathologic features in 69 intracranial ependymomas, excluding myxopapillary ependymomas and subependymomas.
  • Furthermore, in many investigations, myxopapillary ependymomas and subependymomas were included and may have confounded results, because those tumors should be considered clinicopathologic entities distinct from the other ependymomas.
  • METHODS: In this retrospective study, the influence of the histologic subtype of ependymoma and of individual histologic features on the outcome of 69 patients with ependymomas was investigated.
  • Myxopapillary ependymomas, subependymomas, and ependymomas with spinal localizations were excluded from the analysis.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The results of the univariate analysis indicated that, for patients with intracranial ependymoma, nuclear atypia, the mitotic index, and the MIB-1 LI significantly influenced survival.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Cerebrospinal fluid cytology in patients with ependymoma: a bi-institutional retrospective study.
  • BACKGROUND: Ependymoma cells are known to occasionally exfoliate into cerebrospinal fluid (CSF).
  • However, the frequency of CSF involvement in patients with ependymoma is unclear, and to the authors' knowledge the cytomorphologic features of the tumor cells have not been described in detail to date.
  • In this study, the CSF findings in patients with ependymal neoplasms are summarized and the cytomorphologic features of ependymoma, including its variants, are illustrated.
  • METHODS: A search of the pathology databases of 2 medical centers was performed to identify all patients with a histologic diagnosis of ependymoma in whom CSF samples were examined.
  • RESULTS: In all, 177 patients with a diagnosis of ependymoma were identified.
  • Of the 8 patients with positive and/or suspicious diagnoses, 5 ependymomas exhibited anaplastic features and 1 tumor was a myxopapillary ependymoma.
  • The positive samples were usually hypercellular, with cohesive epithelioid cells; long cytoplasmic processes resembling bipolar tanycytes were observed in the tanycytic variant of ependymoma.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Exfoliated cells from ependymomas are recognizable in CSF samples, especially in patients with myxopapillary tumors and tumors with anaplastic features.

  • STUDY DESIGN: A retrospective multicenter study of series of 20 patients with myxopapillary ependymomas, which underwent surgery.
  • OBJECTIVE.: To evaluate the postoperative outcomes of patients surgically treated for spinal myxopapillary ependymoma.
  • SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA.: Myxopapillary ependymomas occur most commonly in the cauda equina and/or conus medullaris region.
  • The heterogeneously enhanced ependymoma not only should be evaluated and treated meticulously, but also surgeons should not stick to total removal in infiltrated and adhering tumors as subtotally resected tumors with postoperative radiotherapy have not always recurred.

  • OBJECTIVE: To describe the cytologic features of myxopapillary ependymoma (MPE) on intraoperative smears, to analyze cytomorphologic parameters that may help in reaching the diagnosis and to discuss differential diagnosis.
  • CONCLUSION: Dual glial and epithelioid properties of tumor cells, well-known features of "regular" ependymomas, and a distinctive myxoid background with HGs strongly support a diagnosis of MPE and are of great help in excluding other mimics (e.g., other variants of ependymoma, metastatic mucinous adenocarcinoma, metastatic adenoid cystic carcinoma and chordoma).

  • OBJECTIVE AND IMPORTANCE: Myxopapillary ependymoma and fatty fila are traditionally thought to arise via completely different pathophysiologies.
  • Magnetic resonance imaging revealed lesions in the area of the conus medullaris consistent with a myxopapillary ependymoma and fatty filum.
  • CONCLUSION: We report an unusual case of a myxopapillary ependymoma coexisting with a fatty filum in an adult patient.

  • METHODS: We reviewed 25 cases of myxopapillary ependymomas, treated surgically between 1972 and 2005.

  • According to the WHO grading system, myxopapillary ependymomas are assigned to WHO Grade I.
  • On histological examination, two tumors were almost acellular and showed polycyclic hyaline and fibrotic extracellular matrix leading to differential diagnoses of chordoma, meningioma, fibrolipoma and ependymoma.
  • Finally, together with the immunohistochemical investigations, electron microscopy led to the diagnosis of myxopapillary ependymoma, WHO Grade I, with massive degenerative changes.
  • The other 2 cases presented with the typical neuropathology of myxopapillary ependymomas but showed local recurrence within 1 and 13 years throughout the whole neuraxis, and in 1 case additional metastases of the 3rd ventricle.
  • Although the morphological feature of these myxopapillary ependymomas was benign, the presented cases showed that the biological behavior of myxopapillary tumors might differ greatly and that these tumors present a serious operative and diagnostic challenge.

  • METHODS: Cytogenetic analysis of four myxopapillary ependymomas was performed using double target fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH), focusing on chromosomes 1 and 22.
  • CONCLUSIONS: We support the presence of a tumour suppressor gene on 1p associated with relapse in myxopapillary ependymomas and suggest that status of chromosome 1p by FISH may indicate a high-risk group of patients harbouring this tumour.

  • [Title] Three-dimensional (3D) reconstruction and quantitative analysis of the microvasculature in medulloblastoma and ependymoma subtypes.
  • In the World Health Organisation (WHO) classification of tumours of the nervous system, four main histopathological subtypes of medulloblastomas (classic medulloblastoma, desmoplastic medulloblastoma, medulloblastoma with extensive nodularity and advanced neuronal differentiation and large cell/anaplastic medulloblastoma) as well as of ependymal tumours (low-grade ependymoma, anaplastic ependymoma, myxopapillary ependymoma and subependymoma) are recognised.
  • Three-dimensional analysis of ependymal tumours showed that low-grade ependymoma had larger but fewer vessels compared to anaplastic ependymoma, while myxopapillary ependymoma had a complex, heterogeneous pattern of vessels and subependymoma few but regular vessels.
  • In ependymal tumours, the highest values for vessel number, vessel area and vessel perimeter were found in anaplastic ependymoma and the lowest values in subependymoma.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Analysis of chromosome 7 in adult and pediatric ependymomas using chromogenic in situ hybridization.
  • The present study utilizes chromogenic in situ hybridization (CISH), a relatively recent hybridization technique, to retrospectively examine chromosome 7-copy number in pediatric and adult ependymomas.
  • Of the 27 hybridizations, polysomy of chromosome 7 was detected in 10 out of 15 (66%) adult ependymomas, and in only three out of 12 (25%) pediatric lesions.
  • All myxopapillary ependymomas showed polysomy.
  • The authors conclude that (1) there are distinct genetic subsets of ependymoma, in particular, increases in copy number of chromosome 7 are almost exclusively found in myxopapillary ependymoma, and that (2) CISH is a rapid and sensitive method of stratifying morphological variants of ependymoma and potentially other central nervous system (CNS) tumors.
