Interest in oligodendrogliomas increased following the publications by Bailey and Bucy in 1929. These tumors represent 4% of all brain tumors in the USA and 4.6% of the Ege Neuro-Oncology Medical Council (ENOK) cases.

Improvements in molecular biology have allowed us to get better clinical results in oligodendrogliomas and it is hoped that this will be reflected in neurogenetic studies with other kinds of gliomas. Anahtar Kelimeler : Oligodendroglioma, FISH, molecular biology
