Abstract

We describe a patient who within 2 months of undergoing radio-chemotherapy for glioblastoma developed an Epstein-Barr virus-positive primary diffuse large B-cell CNS lymphoma. To our knowledge, this is the first such case reported in the literature showing that new tumefactions following aggressive treatment for glioblastomata might represent secondary malignancies.
