Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most common and the most malignant primary intracranial tumor in adults and it is usually occurs between the age of 40 and 60 years. It is local invasive and recurrent tumor and hence that has a poor prognosis. However, recent advances in tumor surgery, irradiation and chemotherapeutic agent permit long survival and metastasis which is symptomatic. Previously studies reported spinal metastasis, but we report a first case of synchronous symptomatic cerebellar and cervical spinal metastasis after resection of symptomatic thoracic spinal metastasis from temporal GBM without any recurrence of excision areas.
