Microscopic histologic description. Biopsies of tumor epicenter have cellularity greater than surrounding brain Biopsies of margin only are difficult to grade; often contain granular calcifications among hypercellular glia Also microcysts and mitotic figures depending on tumor grade May have uneven distribution of cellular density that obscures gray white junction or spawns secondary structures of Scherer subpial and perineuronal neoplastic glia.
Collagen , reticulin , fibronectin. Differential diagnosis. Gliosis: even distribution of cellular density, contracts instead of expanding near hypercellular glia; usually less pleomorphism, no nuclear hyperchromasia, no nuclear cluster formation, no nuclear molding, no mitotic figures, no calcifications.

Trauma-induced Reactive Gliosis Is Reduced After Treatment With Octanol and Carbenoxolone
Gliosis is a nonspecific reactive change of glial cells in response to damage to the central nervous system CNS. In most cases, gliosis involves the proliferation or hypertrophy of several different types of glial cells, including astrocytes , microglia , and oligodendrocytes. In its most extreme form, the proliferation associated with gliosis leads to the formation of a glial scar. The process of gliosis involves a series of cellular and molecular events that occur over several days. This process, which constitutes a form of gliosis known as microgliosis, begins within hours of the initial CNS injury. Gliosis has historically been given a negative connotation due to its appearance in many CNS diseases and the inhibition of axonal regeneration caused by glial scar formation.
