Butterfly Glioblastoma

Butterfly Glioblastoma

'Butterfly' glioblastoma is so named because of its tendency to cross midline over the corpus callosum to extend into the opposite hemisphere. It is a rare brain malignancy. It is a tumor with poor prognosis; the survival is few months after the diagnosis. Due to unfavorable position, surgical resection is not effective.
