Glioblastoma multiforme in a 12 years old boy
Keywords:Glioblastoma, histopathology, concomitant Temozolamide
AbstractThis is a rare case of a fit twelve-year-old male child, who presented with headache and convulsions. MRI showed 5x5 cm right tempro-parietal mass. Surgery was performed, and histopathology and immune- histochemistry confirmed the diagnosis of gliobastoma multiforme. He received external beam radiotherapy in a dose of 54 Gy in 27 fractions, concomitant with daily oral Temozulamide, followed by adjuvant monthly Temozulamide for six months. He remained well and died two and half years after treatment due to disease progression.
