Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most aggressive, malignant primary brain tumor with increasing frequency in older age group. The majority of cases occur in the 6th to 8th decade of life, with a male predominance. GBM is unusual in the pediatric age group and accounts for only 3% of all the childhood brain tumors. The treatment of GBM is still challenging in children. We report a case of GBM in an 11-year-old male child located in the right cerebral hemisphere. Right fronto-parietal craniotomy and gross total excision of the tumor were performed successfully.
