Abstract :

The presence of cartilaginous component in gliomas including ependymoma is a unique phenomenon. We herein report an 8-yearold boy who suffered from a tumor in the fourth ventricle that histopathologic evaluation proved that it was an uncommon ependymoma with cartilage within the tumor tissue. Derivation of this mature chondrocytes is unknown and immunohistochemical labeling for GFAP, EMA, cytokeratin and ki-67 could not support their possible origin from glial cells. Radiation role in chondroid metaplasia was rejected during this present case. At the end of this study, we investigated cartilaginous ependymomas have more aggressive behavior than classic ependymomas.
