After standard treatment of glioblastoma multiforme (GM) using surgery and focal radiation therapy, a loco-regional relapse, and ultimately death usually occur within two years. Some reports of spinal metastases suggest that spreading in the neuraxis might ultimately occur if local treatment was always successful. The occurrence of metastases outside the neuraxis is rare and suggests that GM may have the ability to form metastases as any cancer. Histological documentation before autospy is rare… Expand
Extracranial Metastasis Of Glioblastoma Multiforme Confirmed By Ct Scan Guide Biopsy: Case Report And Review Of The Literature
In patients with malignant glioma and lower-back pain, bone metastasis, although uncommon, does occasionally occur and its possibility should be investigated. Expand
Lack of Evidence of Osteo-medullary Metastases at Diagnosis in Patients with High Grade Gliomas
It is suggested that metastatic deposits are probably a late event in the natural history of high grade gliomas, however, if local treatment could reach local control, metastases would probably become a major problem and definitive cure of highgrade glioma may require multidisciplinary approach.

Concomitant bone marrow metastasis of a glioblastoma multiforme revealed at the diagnosis
In patients with malignant glioma tumours, bone marrow metastasis, though not common, should be investigated when bone pain or cytopaenia occur. Expand
[Rare clinical form of glioblastoma multiforme].
An unusual and rare form of glioblastoma multiforme is discussed, based on the available literature, which is typically located supratentorially in the fronto-temporal region. Expand
Pleuropulmonary metastasis of glioblastoma multiforme: A case report and review of the literature
A 63-year-old man with metastatic glioblastoma multiforme who presented with a large pleural effusion and lung mass is described, and bronchoscopic transbronchial needle aspiration was the diagnostic procedure. Expand
Pleuropulmonary Metastasis of Glioblastoma Multiforme: A Case Report and Review of the Literature
A 63-year-old man with metastatic glioblastoma multiforme who presented with a large pleural effusion and lung mass is described, and bronchoscopic transbronchial needle aspiration was the diagnostic procedure. Expand
Multifocal glioblastoma with remote cutaneous metastasis: a case report and review of the literature.
Improved diagnostic modalities and prolonged survival have increased the likelihood of detection of extracranial mestastases from GBM and this potential may be greater in multifocal GBM, where FNA is a valuable method for the definite diagnosis of metastatic GBMs. Expand
Extraneural metastases in glioblastoma patients: two cases with YKL-40-positive glioblastomas and a meta-analysis of the literature
Glioblastoma (GBM) are high-grade gliomas that severely impact on overall survival (OS). GBM cell motility and the breakdown of the blood–brain barrier could favor GBM cell communication with theExpand
Extraneural Glioblastoma Metastasis: A Case Report
A very rare occurence of extraneural cervical lymph node and vertebral metastasis of glioblastoma is presented with comprehensive literature review and maximal surgery followed by chemoradiotherapy is presented. Expand
The natural history of extracranial metastasis from glioblastoma multiforme
It is concluded that patients with glioblastoma extracranial metastasis have poor prognosis, but there has been a progressive lengthening of survival in each successive decade from 1940 to 2000. Expand


Spinal Drop Metastases in Recurrent Glioblastoma Multiforme
On histological examination both tumours showed wide perivascular tumour-cell cuffings in the surrounding brain tissue, so that thisPerivascular growth might be another explanation for the dissemination in these glioblastomas. Expand
Extraneural metastases of astrocytomas and glioblastomas clinicopathological study of two cases and review of literature
A review of the literature consists of 72 autopsy cases with extraneural deposits of intracranial gliomas in adults and men, finding that the primary glioma was supratentorial in 67 cases and metastases were mainly pulmonary and pleural. Expand
Growth and metastatic behavior of five human glioblastomas compared with nine other histological types of human tumor xenografts in SCID mice.
Findings show SCID mice to be an attractive model for further biological and preclinical studies of human glioblastoma multiforme and suggest that the clinical rarity of distant metastasis is not a fundamental property of these cells. Expand
