Nevertheless, owing to their shared low proliferative activity and the lack of histological signs of malignancy, WHO grade I and II gliomas are frequently subsumed under the category of ‘‘low-grade glioma’’. In contrast, glial tumors of WHO grades III and IV are referred to as ‘‘high-grade gliomas’’. It should be clear, however, that the dichotomy of ‘‘low-grade glioma’’ versus ‘‘high-grade gliomas’’, albeit common for clinical practice, is an oversimplification that carries potential pitfalls as heterogeneous tumor entities with different biological and clinical behavior are grouped together.
