Abstract

Three patients with malignant gliomas who developed dissemination of tumor at the time of recurrence are presented. All three patients received combination therapy including conventional radiotherapy and interstitial radiation therapy followed by systemic BCNU chemotherapy. A review of the literature on the development of glioma metastases and an analysis of the possible mechanisms of this uncommon growth pattern are presented.
