This fact sheet provides a brief overview of glioma tumors. Please see Brain Tumors: An Introduction for more information. A glioma is a type of brain tumor that grows from glial cells. Glial cells support nerve cells with energy and nutrients and help maintain the blood-brain barrier. There are various types of glial cells, each with a different function:. Astrocyte - transports nutrients and holds neurons in place Oligodendrocyte - provides insulation myelin to neurons Microglia - digests dead neurons and pathogens Ependymal cells - line the ventricles and secrete cerebrospinal fluid.

GBMs are high-grade astrocytomas; they are therefore generally aggressive, largely resistant to therapy, and have a corresponding poor prognosis. They have a predilection for spreading along the condensed white matter tracts such as corticospinal tracts and corpus callosum to involve the contralateral hemisphere. Glioblastoma was previously known as glioblastoma multiforme; the multiform refers to the tumor heterogeneity. Somewhat confusingly the abbreviation GBM is still considered appropriate Primary glioblastomas are those that arise de novo, without a pre-existing lower grade diffuse astrocytoma. Primary glioblastomas are almost invariably IDH wild-type.
