The irreversible transition of the tumoral cells towards more heterogeneous stages 7, 8, 15. The phenomenon of progression is very frequent among neuroectodermal tumors and its recognition is crucial for a correct definition of malignancy8, 9, 13-15. Its evidence in our series (Fig. 3) was proved in the following tumor groups: I. semibenign astrocytomas, grade II (28 cases): foci of increased cellular density and slight nuclear abnormality (suggesting a higher degree of malignancy) in 10 cases (36%); 2.

The reliability of the information provided by stereotactic biopsy depends strictly on the careful planning of the procedure l - 6, 10, 11. It is mandatory that samples be taken from different parts of the tumor as well as from the surrounding brain. The planning of M. 2c sample collection is largely based on the findings of the neuroradiological studies, which are performed in stereotactic conditions l - 3, 5, 6, 10, II, integrated with clinical history and neurological examination.
