This chapter contains a description of three rare entities: astroblastoma, angiocentric glioma, and chordoid glioma. Because these tumours are so rare, the evidence on how to best treat them is anecdotal and essentially consists of case series, but it is the best guidance available and the presentation of larger series with new cases remain unlikely. If one is confronted with such a case, a meticulous review of the clinical, radiological, and pathological characteristics of the case is indicated, to minimize the risk of an erroneous diagnosis. If the case does not fit in with the descriptions of previous cases, alternative diagnoses should be considered.
