The central nervous system’s highly specialized functions, complicated structures, and complex metabolism illustrate and confirm its distinctive place in clinical medicine and pathology. The very topic of minimal neoplasia and early cancer on which this meeting is focused tends to emphasize this special role: Although we do know quite a catalogue of gliomas, paragliomas, meningeomas, and other brain tumors, safely discernible precancerous lesions (“minimal neoplasias” or “early cancer lesions”) like those identified and adequately characterized in many other organs are practically unknown in the human CNS.
