Spinal Metastasis in Glioblastoma Multiforme: A Case Study

Arzbaecher, Jean

Collapse Box

Abstract

Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most common primary malignant brain tumor. Spinal metastasis is rare. However, as local control of the primary tumor improves, metastatic disease is increasingly possible. The neuroscience nurse plays an instrumental role in caring for patients with GBM, developing a plan of care based on each patient's needs and outcomes.
