In brief: Type of CNS tumor

Gliomas are a type of tumor that starts in the central nervous system (cns), including the brain or spine.
It is called a glioma because it arises from glial cells, which is a type of CNS cell. The most common site of gliomas is the brain. Gliomas are classified by cell type, by grade, and by location. An anaplastic oligodendroglioma arises form and may be malignant and perhaps a worse prognosis.
