Abstract: An autopsy case of oligodendroglioma with extracranial metastases through blood vessels and cerebro-spinal fluid in a 44-year-old female is reported. Post-mortem examination revealed that the tumor involved the left frontal region, optic chiasma, cauda equina, spinal cord, subarachinoid space and bone (sternum, spine, ribs). Microscopic appearances showed the features of rapid anaplastic transformation. Glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP)-positive neoplastic oligodendrocytes were found in some areas of the honey-comb structure with prominant vascular stromata in recurrent and metastatic lesions. The histogenesis of this tumor may be interpreted as the constant or temporary production of GFAP by neoplastic oligodendrocytes as a sign of reversion to the fetal oligodendroglia without necessarily implying astrocytic hitogenesis. The present case is the second case of oligodendroglioma with extracranial metastases reported in Japan.
