Abstract

Pleomorphic xanthoastrocytoma (PXA) is a low-grade astrocytic tumour that occasionally progresses to a higher grade. We have extensively reviewed the literature on the potential for malignant transformation of PXA. An illustrative case of a PXA transforming to glioblastoma multiforme is presented.
