Abstract

Introduction: Extraneural metastases of glioblastoma are very rare clinical entities, especially in pediatric patients. Because of their rarity, they can be confused with other pathological processes. Case Presentation: We report a case of 16-year-old boy with extensive extraneural metastases of glioblastoma. Lung, liver, cervical lymph nodes, skin, and bone metastases were detected in the patient. Conclusion: We describe the presentation, evaluation, and diagnosis of this rare condition with regard to pertinent literature.
