    These tumors are commonly located in the brain, but can also be located within the CNS, for example a Ewings sarcoma. I would consider using 191.9. Without seeing the report to clarify I can't be 100% sure this is correct. I would code malignant neoplasm based on the location in the body.
    Thanks, Jill
