Article Abstract
Polymorphic low-grade neuroepithelial tumor of the young (PLNTY) is a highly epileptogenic subtype of tumors that may mimic low-grade gliomas but offer pathologic and genetic clues: oligodendroglioma-like cellular components and infiltration patterns and strong CD34-immunopositive stain. In addition, a key finding is radiologic: A univocal abnormality best seen on MRI brain in FLAIR sequence as the "salt and pepper sigh" and calcifications appreciated on CT head.
