Nanda J. Patil, Sujata S. Kametkar.

Abstract
The nervous system is different from other organ systems in various ways as there is seen high degree of cellular specialization, high metabolic requirements and low regenerative capacity. The present study was a two years (June 2016- May 2018) prospective cross sectional histopathological study of CNS tumours done in a tertiary care center. During this period total 52 cases of CNS tumours were studied. Astrocytoma was the second most common histopathological diagnosis. The commonly affected age group was 51-70 years. Maximum number of cases were Grade IV astrocytomas and presented as rapid onset. Meningioma and schwannoma presented as slow growing tumours. The commonest site of schwannoma was cerebello-pontine angle. Meningioma and astrocytoma form the majority of CNS tumors, the commonest clinical presentation being headache, giddiness, vomiting, limb weakness and seizures.

Key words: Tumour, Nervous system, Astrocytic, Meningioma, Brain tissue
