Background: Central Nervous System tumors are group of neoplasms having different prevalence in different sex and age groups and various parts of CNS. The aim of our study to show the prevalence of various brain tumors and their age and sex distribution.
Methodology: The present 1.5 years study from a single tertiary care center, Gujarat research and medical institute, the patient diagnosed with CNS tumors and registered between 2014 and 2015 in the pathology department were consecutively screened. The inclusion criteria were cases of CNS tumors of all age groups. The tumors of peripheral nervous system. With these criteria, a total of 107 cases of CNS tumors were studied, and their histological typing and grading was done.
Result: All the CNS tumors were divided into seven categories: Tumors of neuroepithelial tissue; tumors of the cranial and paraspinal nerves; tumors of the meninges; lymphomas and hematopoietic neoplasms; germ cell tumors; tumors of the sellar region; and metastatic tumors. most common lesions were Astrocytic Tumours followed by Meningeal Tumors. Male to Female ratio is 1.0 : 0.98.
Conclusion: Nowadays there is an increase in incidence of CNS tumors in developing countries because of advanced health care and diagnostic facilities. Astrocytic tumors are the most common followed by meningeal tumors. The study shows prevalent pattern and comparison with similar studies. This may help in locating prevailing etiological index of that region.
