Abstract

We present a child diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme during infancy and successfully treated with the 'eight-in-one' chemotherapy regimen, who developed an intracranial fibrosarcoma 5 years later. After resection of the fibrosarcoma, she received cranial radiation therapy and high dose chemotherapy with bone marrow transplant. She remains alive and recurrence-free 7 years following the diagnosis of her second intracranial malignancy.
