Report of GBM metastasis to the parotid gland.

J Neurooncol. 2005 Sep;74(3):337-8. Related Articles, Links

Ogungbo BI, Perry RH, Bozzino J, Mahadeva D.

Glioblastoma Multiforme frequently metastasises from their original location by for example infiltration along white matter tracts [1]. GBM metastasis outside the central nervous system is distinctly rare though there are previous reports of spread to various organs [2-5]. We add an unusual case of a patient with aggressive cerebral GBM metastasis to the parotid gland and the lungs.
