J Craniovertebr Junction Spine. 2010 Jul;1(2):126-9. doi: 10.4103/0974-8237.77678.


Glioblastoma multiforme is the most common malignant brain tumor in adults. Metastasis of intracranial glioblastoma via the cerebrospinal fluid to the spine is a rare occurrence. We present two cases of glioblastoma multiforme with spinal leptomeningeal spread who presented with back pain and paraparesis.

Keywords: Glioblastoma multiforme; leptomeningeal metastasis; spine.
