Abstract

This paper presents an atypical case of a patient with brain tumor of the glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) type who achieved a 5-year survival. Some general information is provided including epidemiology, diagnostic and treatment procedures (surgery and radio-chemo-therapy), and prognosis of survival related to GBM. The course of the disease, including its main symptoms, individual reasons for the delay of adjuvant treatment, after the primary surgical treatment, 37-month period of the decease free survival, as well as comprehensive management after the tumor recurrence are also presented. Histopathology confirming the clinical diagnosis is discussed in a separate chapter.
