Tumor tissues of gliohlastoma multiforme. astrocytoma and medulloblastoma, maintained up to 21 28 days by gelfoam organ culture technique, were examined by scanning electron microscopy (SEM).

Glioblastoma multiform has irregular cell surface and many cytoplasmic folds. Astrocytoma has many fibrils. The fibrils have smooth surface and are coiling. Fibrils of piloid astrocytoma are smooth and cylindrical. The focal thickness of fibrils are associated with so-called Rosenthal fiber.
