Abstract

ABSTRACT

Simultaneous occurrence of Neurocysticercosis (NC) along with Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM) is a very rare presentation. We herein describe a case report of treated case of NC2 years back who presented with secondary GBM. The brief report highlights that there may be some associated factors which may lead to development of secondary GBM in preexisting helminthic infection.
