Primary Sarcomas of the Brain
The primary sarcomas of the brain have up to now belonged to a poorly demarcated and defined group of intracranial tumours. Of course it is now a long time since a whole series of tumours were incorrectly designated as “sarcomas”—oligodendrogliomas, medulloblastomas, meningiomas — this can in part be traced back to Virchow’s definition. It is no longer permissable to use the sarcoma as a dumping ground for otherwise unclassifiable tumours. In general pathology very clear definitions of sarcomas are now available for our guidance.
