Glioblastoma multiforme is the most common malignant primary brain tumor in adults (+/- 40% of the Central Nervous System primary tumors). Representing only 2% of all oncologic processes, they are associated with a great deterioration of cerebral functions and a poor prognosis, facts that contribute to their great individual and social impact. The authors report a case of glioblastoma multiforme, with multifocal lesions "ab initio" and show the difficulty to make a correct diagnosis, even with the most modern imagiologic techniques. They also make a brief review of the literature.
