Abstract

We report a case of a 62-year-old female patient with paraplegia. Magnetic resonance imaging showed an intramedullary mass lesion of thoracic region. Surgery was performed and histopathological evaluation revealed primary glioblastoma of the spinal cord. Primary spinal glioblastoma is a rare entity unlike cranial counterpart; with high mortality rate. Survival rates are still unsatisfactory even with surgery accompanied by adjuvant chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
