Ependymal Tumor

Stages of Ependymal Tumor

Ependymal tumors are graded based on how quickly they grow. Subependymomas and myxopapillary ependymomas are two types of grade I tumors, and are typically slow growing. Ependymomas, or grade II ependymal tumors, are the most common type, and can be divided into cellular ependymomas, papillary ependymomas, clear cell ependymomas and tancytic ependymomas. Grade III ependymal tumors, called anaplastic ependymomas, are usually faster growing and offer patients a poorer prognosis.
