Metastatic paediatric glioblastomas are extremely rare, Involvement of leptomeninges is the most important factor in the development of metastases and most reported cases of metastatic glioblastomas occur after one or more craniotomies. In metastatic disease, lymphnodes are frequently involved and diagnosis is established with histology or cytology. The optimal management of these tumours is not known and current management is palliative. We report a case of metastatic glioblastoma multiforme in a five year old child with review of the relevant literature.
