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.


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.
