Anaplastic astrocytoma is a very rare type of malignant brain tumor affecting human at all ages. As this tumor develops from astrocytes, the star-shaped brain cells it is termed as astrocytoma. The astrocytes along with other cells protect nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord by surrounding them. All these protective cells are collectively termed as glial cells. World Health Organization (WHO) graded these tumors on a scale from I to IV based on normal or abnormal growth structure and ability of infiltration to the nearby tissues. Astrocytomas can be categorized low-grade as well as high-grade depending on the disease spread, generally low-grade astrocytoma are localized and grows gradually whereas high-grade astrocytoma grows rapidly and spread to nearby tissues.  Usually low grade astrocytomas are found in children and high grade in adults however lower grade astrocytomas gradually converts into higher grade astrocytomas. The symptoms for this disease include severe headache, focal neurological deficits, depression and sometimes seizures.
