Rejected the use of cellularity from their criteria because cellularity is influenced by the thickness of the specimen and is likely to be judged subjectively. What is necessary for an ideal histological grading system? First, good clinical correlation, and second, the grading system should be simple and easy for pathologists to use. The latter factor naturally improves objectivity and reproducibility of the grade considering the judging process of pathologists.

In 1993 [2]. The origin of the tumor cells of central neurocytoma is unknown and the nature of the transmitter substance involved remains to be investigated. Subependymal Giant Cell Astrocytoma In addition to central neurocytoma, two other benign tumors develop in the region of the foramen of Monro; one is subependymoma [16] and the other is subependymal giant cell astrocytoma.
