A Case of Multicentric Glioblastoma Multiforme

  • 1Department of Neurosurgery, College of Medicine, Soonchunhyang University, Seoul, Korea.


A 46 year-old male with drowsy mentality and left hemiparesis had been treated. Right carotid angiogram showed a mass effect on the posterior temporal region. Preoperative CT brain scan revealed two separated hypodense masses with ring enhancement on the each hemisphere. The right-sided mass was totally removed and there was no invasion into the ventricle and meninges. The histological diagnosis was a glioblastoma multiforme. The left-sided mass was followed with the repeated CT scan, which showed the similar CT findings of a glioblastoma multiforme, and there was no evidence of commiccural extension. The above findings were consistent with the criteria of multicentric tumor.
