(Maybe the message was truncated? It was ..)
Medulloblastomas <- Gliomas <- Neoplasm, benign
… which both are wrong (not glioma, not benign, most gliomas not benign).
Maybe there is a general error in sub-/up-classing ICD-O 3? The last of the codes’ 5 digits is special and designates “malignancy” (well, histologically). So 8500/0 is not a superset of 8500/3, but something different (true adenomas may not be carcinoma precursors etc.).
Anyway, a search leading from medulloblastomas (a set of PNET tumors) to benign gliomas is extremely misleading (biologically & medically).
How was this schema derived?
Glad to help if need be.
