Abstract
The Section of Histopathology, Aga Khan University is the largest center for histopathology in Pakistan and is the major reporting and referral center for CNS neoplasms in the country. Over the years, a significant increase has been noted in the number of CNS neoplasms reported annually. This increase most likely represents increased number of neurosurgical procedures being performed. A major problem that we face as histopathologists is absence of clinical history or radiological films in a large number of cases.
