Oligodendrogliomas are more common in adults than children and more common in males than females. There is no known cause of the tumors. ...more »

Definitions of Oligodendroglioma:

Oligodendroglioma is a well-differentiated (WHO grade II), diffusely infiltrating tumor of adults, typically located in the cerebral hemispheres and composed predominantly of cells which morphologically resemble oligodendroglia. They are moderately cellular and composed of tumor cells with rounded, homogeneous nuclei and, on paraffin sections, a swollen, clear cytoplasm ('honeycomb' appearance). Oligodendrogliomas generally recur locally, with median post-operative survival times ranging from 3 to 5 years for patients with all histological grades. (Adapted from WHO.) - (Source - Diseases Database)

Ophanet, a consortium of European partners, currently defines a condition rare when it affects 1 person per 2,000. They list Oligodendroglioma as a "rare disease".
