Ayurvedic Treatment for Anaplastic Ependymoma

Anaplastic Ependymoma


Anaplastic Ependymoma is a rare form of cancer which is characterized by a rapid multiplication of ependymal cells in the central nervous system, including the brain and spinal cord. The ependymal cells which multiply very quickly in Anaplastic Ependymoma are the cells which comprise the ventricles of the brain and the middle part of the spinal cord.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), Anaplastic Ependymoma is categorized as 'Grade III Ependymoma.' This particular type of tumor is generally much faster-growing and malignant in comparison to other tumors like Myxopapillary Ependymoma (MPE) which usually occurs in the lower part of the spinal column, and Subependymoma which mostly occurs close to a ventricle.

People of all age-groups can be affected by Ependymomas, though the risk is higher for older adults and children. When the tumor occurs in older adults, it is mostly located in the spinal cord; and when the tumor occurs in children, it is usually located in the brain.


The precise reason for the occurrence of Anaplastic Ependymoma is not yet known. However, medical practitioners believe that the rapid multiplication of ependymal cells in these tumors is a result of mutations (changes) in certain genes; specifically, genetic conditions like Turcot syndrome, Hippel-Lindau disease, or neurofibromatosis.

Besides genetic conditions, some other risk factors of linked to Anaplastic Ependymoma are:

  • Exposure to infections, viruses, and allergens
  • Occupational exposures to oil products, rubber, vinyl chloride, solvents, or pesticides
  • Electromagnetic fields resulting from cell phone use or energy from power lines
  • X-rays and treatment with ionizing radiation


The symptoms of Anaplastic Ependymoma are mostly dependent on location of the tumor and its size. Nonetheless, some of the common symptoms of this tumor are:

  • Brain seizures
  • Irritability
  • Drowsiness
  • Changes in personality, speech and hearing
  • Memory problems
  • Loss of balance
  • Difficulty with fine motor skills
  • Inability to look upward (pineal tumor)
  • Lactation, altered menstrual periods
  • Headache, fatigue, nausea and vomiting
  • Vision-related problems like blurred vision.


The diagnosis of Anaplastic Ependymoma is confirmed with the help of the following tests:

  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
  • Computerized Tomography (CT)
  • Positron emission tomography
  • Myelogram
  • Electroencelography
  • Cerebral arteriogram
  • Blood tests
  • Lumbar puncture
  • Stereotactic biopsy
