Pilocytic astrocytoma in adults
Pilocytic astrocytoma is classified by the World Health Organization as a grade 1 tumor: low-grade astrocytoma with an indolent course, in most cases. MRI typically shows a cystic mass with an enhancing mural nodule. A small percentage of cases will have a more aggressive course. Gross total resection may be curative in many cases.
