Patient Data

A large right frontal mass with peripheral enhancement and restricted diffusion and central non-enhancement (presumably necrosis) is noted which bulges towards the left between the falx and the anterior cerebral arteries as well as involving the genu of the corpus callosum. 

Case Discussion

Characteristic features of a glioblastoma (proven at surgery/histology).
