AbstractObjectivesTo investigate the value of contrast-enhanced (CE) turbo spin echo black blood (BB) sequences for imaging of therapy-naive high-grade gliomas (HGGs).MethodsConsecutive patients with histopathologically confirmed World Health Organization (WHO) grade III or IV gliomas and no oncological treatment prior to index imaging (March 2019 to January 2020) were retrospectively included. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) at 3 Tesla comprised CE BB and CE turbo field echo (TFE) sequences. The lack/presence of tumor-related contrast enhancement and satellite lesions were evaluated by two readers. Sharper delineat...
ConclusionsRibociclib administered following radiotherapy is feasible in DIPG and DMG. Increased tumor necrosis may represent a treatment effect. These data warrant further prospective volumetric analyses of tumors with necrosis. Feasibility and stabilization findings support further investigation of ribociclib in combination therapies.Trial registrationNCT02607124.
We present a case of LGI1 encephalitis only partially responsive to immunotherapy with eventual complete resolution after resection of a squamous cell lung carcinoma.

Gliomas are a diverse group of primary central nervous system tumors with astrocytic, oligodendroglial, and/or ependymal features and are an important cause of morbidity/mortality in pediatric patients. Glioma classification relies on integrating tumor histology with key molecular alterations. This approach can help establish a diagnosis, guide treatment, and determine prognosis. New categories of pediatric glioma have been recognized in recent years, due to increasing application of molecular profiling in brain tumors. The aim of this review is to alert pediatric pathologists to emerging diagnostic concepts in pediatric g...
In the original publication, there are errors in Fig. 3D and Fig. 5C and are corrected as follows.
CONCLUSIONS: LINC00346/miR-128-3p/SZRD1 axis played a crucial role in modulating the malignant progression of glioma, which may serve as a prognostic indicator and a probable therapeutic target for glioma. PMID: 33015801 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSIONS: SUMO1P3 promotes glioma cell proliferation, migration, and invasion, and may be involved in Wnt/β-catenin signaling. PMID: 33015800 [PubMed - in process]
