Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most common and malignant primary brain tumor in adults. The occurrence of this entity in infants is a rarity and portends a uniformly dismal prognosis and survival in spite of all the latest available management options. The authors herein report a case of a GBM in an 11 month-old infant with tumor involving predominantly the left temporal and frontal regions who expired 10 weeks after tumor decompression.The case presented here is unique, with atypical clinical and unusual radiologic features. This article emphasizes the need for meticulous prenatal screening and calls for a comprehensive consensus management protocol and recognizes congenital GBMs as a typical subset of tumors.
