Case Report - Glioblastoma multiforme in a child with acute lymphoblastic leukemia: Case report and review of literature|
Shah KiritC, Rajshekhar Vedantam
An 11-year-old boy with acute lymphoblastic leukemia had received prophylactic cranial irradiation (1800 cGy /10 fractions) and intrathecal methotrexate. Five years later, he developed a glioblastoma multiforme in the right frontal region while the leukemia was in remission. It is possible that the glioma may have been induced by radiation and /or chemotherapy.
