Astroblastoma is a very rare primary brain tumor. Its diagnosis is often challenging because of the astroblastic aspects that can be found in astrocytic tumors, in ependymomas, and in non-neuroepithelial tumors. Considerable confusion surrounds its histogenesis and classification. The low incidence rate makes it difficult to conduct studies to examine characteristics.
GENERAL PATHOLOGY: -
Since the early 1890s, astroblastoma has established a stable set of pathological qualities that truly distinguishes itself as a separate and significant entity.
Compilations from various case reports reveal the following common characteristics:
- Appears "bubbly" in nature.
- Polarized, unipolar in structures.
- Peripheral vasculature.
- Radial arrangement as a pseudorosette.
- Immunoreactive for GFAP and vimentin (supports astrocytic origin).
- Lacks "true rosette" architectures.
- Lacks structural cohesiveness.
- Prominent pseudopapillae formations.
- Localization mostly in cerebral hemispheres.
- Nodular, non-invasive growths.
- Strong, associative vasculature in other parts of the body.
- Tissue fibrosis prominence.
- High likelihood of vascular hyalinization.
- Low likelihood to metastasize toward other regions of the brain.
HOMEOPATHIC MANAGEMENT: -
The medicines that can be thought of use are:-
- Calcarea carb
- Calcarea flourica
- Calcarea phos
- Conium mac
- Cuprum met
- Helleborus niger
- Kali iod
- Ruta Graveolens
- Thuja occ
