Abstract: Glioblastoma multiforme is the most aggressive primary malignant tumor of brain which is uncommon in pediatric age group. 25 - 35% of these high grade gliomas are found in frontal lobe which is most common site of presentation. Treatment includes surgical excision followed by adjuvant radiotherapy and oral chemotherapy based on temozolamide. Despite treatment, GBM carries a dismal prognosis with mean survival of 1 year. We present a rare case study of a 9 year old female child with GBM in left cerebellar hemisphere with 2 years of follow up after treatment completion.
