Özet

Introduction: Primary spinal glioblastoma multiforme is a very rare disease with high morbidity and mortality rates. No definite treatment algorhythm can be constituted, but multimodal treatment regimens have been administered. Aim of the treatment is to excise the mass nearly completely, and then application of radiotherapy and chemotherapy in a short period.
