The newly developed vessels are morphologically similar to renal glomeruli and their endothelial cells are phenotypically different from normal endothelial cells — they are overlapped focally, hyperplastic and heterogeneous in size and shape.

Because the tumor grade is based upon the most malignant portion of the tumor, biopsy or subtotal tumor resection can result in undergrading of the lesion. It is known that the survival advantage among patients treated with temozolomide and radiotherapy is longer compared with radiotherapy alone [ 70 ].
