An ependymoma is a type of tumour arising from ependymal cells, which line the brain’s ventricles and the spinal cord’s central canal. These tumours can occur at any age but are more common in children and young adults. Ependymomas are classified into different grades based on their appearance under a microscope and their aggressiveness. Symptoms vary depending on the tumour’s location but may include headaches, nausea, vomiting, seizures, and changes in vision or balance. Treatment often involves surgery to remove as much of the tumour as possible, possibly followed by radiation therapy or, less commonly, chemotherapy, depending on the tumour’s grade and location, as well as the patient’s overall health and age. The aim is to control the growth of the tumour and alleviate symptoms, focusing on maintaining the quality of life.
