Abstract

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.
