The authors sought to determine whether histology was an equivalent or superior predictor of outcome compared with 1p/19q status in 131 patients with anaplastic oligodendroglial (AO) tumors. The results suggested that, in addition to 1p/19q status, histologic features contribute information to the prediction of outcome in patients with AO.
