ABSTRACT
Pleomorphic xanthoastrocytoma(PXA) is a rare neoplasm with favorable prognosis despite of its aggressive histological features. The authors report three cases of pleomorphic xanthoastrocytomas. The masses were in the temporal or parietal lobe of children or adolscence and presented as complex partial seizures. Total removal of mass was performed in all three cases and the seizure was abscent postoperatively. It is important to differentiate of pleomorphic xanthoastrocytoma from other malignant brain tumors and identify this type of glioma as a distinct entity.
Key Words: Pleomorphic xanthoastrocytoma; Surgical excision
