Gliomas are the most common type of primary malignant brain tumors. Several subtypes of glioma are recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO), based on histological and molecular criteria.
The WHO classification of brain tumors was updated in 2016 and in this thesis the results of several studies on classification and clinical management of lower-grade glioma in the context of these updated WHO criteria are described.
