Multiple extraneural metastases of oligodendroglioma: a case
The present case has been reported in the Asian Journal of Neurosurgery.

Oligodendrogliomas (ODGs) are diffuse glial tumors that constitute 4.2% of all brain tumors. Extraneural metastases, sometimes seen in glioblastoma multiforme, are extremely rare in ODG.

In this report, the authors present a case of 63-year-old male patient who was diagnosed with Grade 3 ODG and had an intracranial mass resected 4 years ago. The subject now presented with low back pain and was found to have widespread metastases.

The prolongation of patient survival by current treatment regimens has revealed a growing number of ODG patients with metastases. The authors believe that back pain complaints in patients with ODG should be viewed as an indicator of metastasis.
