Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), the most common malignant brain tumor of adults, is relatively rare in children. In a GBM affecting a 16-year-old boy, the tumor spread across the corpus callosum (butterfly glioma). This type of bilateral hemispheric growth has previously been thought to result from spread along the white matter tracts. Two samples obtained… CONTINUE READING
