Glioblastoma NOS (student teaching)


This patient presented with new onset seizures and on imaging had an ill-defined enhancing mass on CT which had features in keeping with glioblastoma on MRI.

This diagnosis was confirmed with pathology following resection.

In patients with new seizures, with or without residual neurology, prompt imaging is strongly advised.
