Introduction.

Anaplastic astrocytoma (AA) and Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) are the most aggressive forms of malignant glioma. Despite advances in radiotherapy, chemotherapy and aggressive surgical resection treatments, such as optical coherence tomography, fluorescence-guided surgery, waking craniotomy, laser interstitial thermal therapy for GBM ablation, intraoperative confocal microscopy and intraoperative mass spectrometry, the prognosis remains bleak.

Objective:

to determine the behavior of high grade gliomas in the Neurosurgery Service of the province of Matanzas.

Materials and methods:

cross-sectional, descriptive, observational study with patients diagnosed with high-grade gliomas in the Neurosurgery Service of the province of Matanzas, in the period from January 1, 2017 to January 1, 2019, for a total of 40 cases.

Results:

the average age of the lesionated patients was 52 years; headache was the predominant symptom, with 72.2 %; the evolution at the presentation of symptoms was less than a month.

Conclusions:

frontal gliomas predominated in 62 % of the cases, and predominated also glioblastoma multiforme histological variety. Subtotal excision was used in most surgeries. Life quality at discharging was higher than at the moment of admission.

Palabras clave : brain tumors; high grade gliomas.
