Abstract
The authors discussed the effects of nuclear accident from Chernobyl (1986) upon the histotypes of cerebral glial tumors, first diagnosed during 1981-1991 at the Department of Pathology, Neurosurgical Hospital, Iasi. It's microscopic diagnosis was determined according to the World Health Organization criterion (1979). The investigations established a tendency to diminish the incidence of astrocytomas and to increase the oligo-astrocytic tumors number, after 1986. Malignant astrocytomas did not presented any modifications with statistical significance during the eleven studied years.
