Background: As in all diffuse gliomas, recurrence is an inherent feature of oligodendrogliomas, either as the same or higher grade neoplasm at the primary site. The rate of remote recurrence after surgery for the primary tumor cannot be estimated from the scarce literature, but delayed treatment of the primary tumor and genetic alterations may be associated with this phenomenon.
