Abstract

We report a case of 54-year-old female with two intracranial tumors, a meningioma and multifocal glioblastoma multiforme with extracranial metastasis. The simultaneous occurrence of meningioma and glioblastoma multiforme and extracranial metastasis of glioblastoma multiforme are rare. We demonstrated additional clinical and pathological features of interest and reviewed the relevant literatures, and have speculated on the causes of this phenomenon.
