Glioblastoma multiforme med intra- og ekstramedullær disseminering til spinalkanalen

Karin Hansson, Henrik Gutte Borgwardt, Fadi Idris


Metastases to the spinal cord from glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) are uncommon, but important to have in mind when patients with a history of GBM present with symptoms that do not correlate with the primary disease pattern. We report a rare case, where a male with GBM, six months after tumour excision followed by concomitant radio- and chemotherapy, presented with gait disturbance and unspecific neurological symptoms of the lower right limb. Magnetic resonance imaging of columna totalis revealed both intra- and extramedullary metastases in the spinal cord. The patient died one month later.
