[bioontology-support] [BioPortal] Feedback from Michael Baudis

(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.

Michael.
