Glioblastoma multiforme intraxial metastasis to the conus medullaris with primary disease under control: a rare unexpected finding


Sabatino, G; Della Pepa, G M; Esposito, G; Brodbelt, A (2013). Glioblastoma multiforme intraxial metastasis to the conus medullaris with primary disease under control: a rare unexpected finding. British Journal of Neurosurgery, 27(3):388-389.

Abstract

We report on glioblastoma multiple spinal intraaxial metastases with primary disease radiologically under control. The case highlights glioblastoma biological behavior and spread mechanisms; dissemination may have occurred initially and been controlled by chemotherapy, or more likely, is an indicator that even if radiologically dormant, disease is unlikely biologically inactive.
