  • A rapid response is a moderated but not peer reviewed online response to a published article in a BMJ journal; it will not receive a DOI and will not be indexed unless it is also republished as a Letter, Correspondence or as other content. Find out more about rapid responses.
  • We intend to post all responses which are approved by the Editor, within 14 days (BMJ Journals) or 24 hours (The BMJ), however timeframes cannot be guaranteed. Responses must comply with our requirements and should contribute substantially to the topic, but it is at our absolute discretion whether we publish a response, and we reserve the right to edit or remove responses before and after publication and also republish some or all in other BMJ publications, including third party local editions in other countries and languages
  • Our requirements are stated in our rapid response terms and conditions and must be read. These include ensuring that: i) you do not include any illustrative content including tables and graphs, ii) you do not include any information that includes specifics about any patients,iii) you do not include any original data, unless it has already been published in a peer reviewed journal and you have included a reference, iv) your response is lawful, not defamatory, original and accurate, v) you declare any competing interests, vi) you understand that your name and other personal details set out in our rapid response terms and conditions will be published with any responses we publish and vii) you understand that once a response is published, we may continue to publish your response and/or edit or remove it in the future.

    We read with interest the work by Kim et al that shows relationship between radiological characteristics and molecular signatures in a group of 49 patients with anaplastic oligodendroglioma (AO) and 7 patients with anaplastic oligoastrocytoma (AOAs). Frontal lobe location, indistinct tumor borders and heterogeneous intratumoral signal intensity were significantly correlated with the 1p19q codeletion. It has been previous...

    Anaplastic oligodendroglial tumors: Do gray matter involvement correlate with 1p19q codeletion?

    Gentian Kaloshi, Mentor Petrela

    In their recently published article, Kim et al (1) describe the imaging characteristics of anaplastic oligodendroglioma and anaplastic oligoastrocytoma (AO/AOAs) in an effort to correlate them with molecular alterations. They try to conclude that high-grade oligodendroglial tumors (AO/AOAs) share a similar relationship between radiological characteristics and molecular signatures...
