Central Nervous System Tumor Classification: An Update on the Integration of Tumor Genetics.

Journal Article (Journal Article;Review)

In 2016, the World Health Organization Classification of CNS Tumors introduced molecular abnormalities that refined tumor diagnoses. Around this time, the introduction of large scale genetic mutational analyses quickly advanced our knowledge of recurrent abnormalities in disease. In 2017, the C-IMPACT group was established to render expert consensus opinions regarding the application of molecular findings into central nervous system tumor diagnoses. C-IMPACT have presented their recommendations in 7 peer-reviewed publications; this article details those recommendations that are expected to be incorporated into the upcoming fifth edition of the World Health Organization classification.
