Abstract

RONDINELLI, Patricia Imperatriz Porto  and  MARTINEZ, Carlos Alberto Osório. Spinal cord metastatic glioblastoma multiforme of childhood: case report. Arq. Neuro-Psiquiatr. [online]. 2002, vol.60, n.3A, pp. 643-646. ISSN 0004-282X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0004-282X2002000400025.

We report the case of an eleven years-old girl with a right temporo-parietal glioblastoma multiforme. The tumor was totally resected on neurossurgery, and cranial radioteraphy was applied at next. The tumor recurred three months later, far from primary site, in the caudal portion of the spinal canal. Death occurred in less than one month later. Taking into account the data of this case, we discuss our experience in the management of such tumors and the literature on the subject.

Keywords : glioblastoma multiforme; spinal metastasis.
