Pinealoma: tumor of the pineal gland.
Source: WordNet 2.1

Pinealoma: Pineal parenchymal tumors are neoplasms of the pineocyte, a cell with photosensory and neuroendocrine functions. These tumors have a wide spectrum, with tumors composed of mature elements to ones consisting of primitive, immature cells. These tumors also have differences in biological behavior and clinical outcome. Three types are: Pineoblastoma, Pineocytoma, Pineal Parenchymal Tumor of Intermediate Differentiation (Adapted from WHO.)
Source: Diseases Database

Pinealoma: Neoplasms which originate from pineal parenchymal cells that tend to enlarge the gland and be locally invasive. The two major forms are pineocytoma and the more malignant pineoblastoma. Pineocytomas have moderate cellularity and tend to form rosette patterns. Pineoblastomas are highly cellular tumors containing small, poorly differentiated cells. These tumors occasionally seed the neuroaxis or cause obstructive HYDROCEPHALUS or Parinaud's syndrome. GERMINOMA; CARCINOMA, EMBRYONAL; GLIOMA; and other neoplasms may arise in the pineal region with germinoma being the most common pineal region tumor. (From DeVita et al., Cancer: Principles and Practice of Oncology, 5th ed, p2064; Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p670).
