Article information

The association between vascular malformations and cerebral gliomas is unusual. While the association between cavernous angioma with gliomatous lesions is even more rare, it is considered by certain authors to be a particular pathological entity termed angioglioma. The authors report on two cases of association of a cavernous angioma with a ganglioglioma and an oligodendroglioma respectively. Subsequent review of the literature on the so-called angiogliomas was conducted. In the author's opinion, the entity of angiogliomas represents a general spectrum of angiomatous neoplasms that include gliomatous tumors, in the majority low-grade gliomas, associated with a major vascular component.

Key words:
Brain tumor
Cavernous angioma

La asociación entre las malformaciones vasculares y los gliomas cerebrales es inusual. Mientras que la asociación entre angioma cavernoso con lesiones gliomatosas es aún más rara, es por esto considerado por algunos autores como una entidad patológica particular llamada angioglioma.

Los autores reportan dos casos de asociación de un angioma cavernoso con una ganglioglioma y un oligodendroglioma, respectivamente. Además se realizó una revisión de la literatura sobre los llamados angiogliomas.

En opinión de los autores, la entidad de los angiogliomas se presenta dentro de un espectro general de neoplasias angiomatosas, que incluyen tumores cerebrales, en su mayoría gliomas de bajo grado, asociados a su vez, con un componente vascular importante.
