Basic histological characteristics of representative astrocytoma sections. Histological pattern of one of the glioblastoma cases showing cellular pleomorphism, palisade necrosis (arrow) and microvascular proliferations (short arrows) (a). G112 tumour did not show any areas of necrosis or microvascular proliferations. Cells with pleomorphic nuclei and mitotic activity were strongly GFAP immunoreactive thus it was classified as WHO grade III (b).
