Neuro Most common primary brain tumor

A 69-year-old woman goes to see her physician because of the recent onset of right-sided weakness and difficulty speaking. Concerned about these focal neurological findings, the physician orders an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scan which shows a large mass in the lateral left hemisphere. She passes away within 6 months of being diagnosed, suggesting she may have developed the most common primary brain tumor, which happens to also be associated with the worst prognosis. What histological features would be appreciated on post-mortem histopathological examination of the tumor?


A. “Fried egg” cells
B.
Perivascular pseudorosettes
C.
Psammoma bodies
D.
Pseudopalisading cells
E. Rosenthal fibers
