• Glioblastoma multiforme is an anaplastic neoplasm of glial origin. In spite of the aggressive histologic features and poor prognosis, metastasis outside the cranial vault is distinctly unusual. A patient with glioblastoma multiforme metastatic to the neck is presented. We also review the topic of metastatic intracranial tumors.
